We all know the person that is selfless, and gives their all, with little expected in return. One of these, that I know is Amy Grisak. She is a professional gardener. Trust me, she has the greenest thumb I know. She also really helps out the community she lives in, that is what this post is about.
She has helped start a few community gardens in the city of Great Falls, and one of those is River City Harvest. She’d never admit it, but her extra efforts have been what made it happen, and kept it going, and growing. (I can think of instances where she has gone out and watered people’s plots for them to keep them from dying, even though it is ultimately their responsibility.)
The garden gives food to the local food bank. Since it is next to a nursing facility, they are trying to make a shelter so people can come over and do some gardening. Gardening is therapeutic. Pretty awesome, huh?!
How can we show her she is appreciated and is awesome? Take 10 seconds and Vote for River City Harvest. Hurry though, because the contest ends August 6, 2012. It only requires your email.
SEOs, and online marketing friends, you can probably help this too by promoting it across your channels. (Twitter, Reddit, Digg – even if you don’t like the new style , Facebook)
Seriously, I will give you an Internet high five, Amy and the other folks that make the garden great deserve this. Watch her video and you will figure out why.
