Liz Olney

We praise the big milestones our gardens go through, and the individuals who helps make them happen! This series of posts is to give shout outs to the unsung heroes that make those milestones happen. JFK said, “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” And these people not only try, they do – remarkably and repeatedly – make a difference in ways big and small.

Through October 15, we are celebrating the individuals who make your garden a success and make Peterson Garden Project work. Each week, we’ll tell the story of one of our amazing volunteers. And, as a small thank you, they will be able to pick out a pair of wonderful Wells-Lamont gloves from Matty K’s – our local hardware store.

This week we would like to recognize Liz Olney! Liz has been at every work day for the past several weeks, she’s the Seed Saving watering crew leader, and is caring for the pollinator bed at Vedgewater. She’s even the artist responsible for the tattoos we created for the Kickstarter! Liz is also an expert on pollinators and will be teaching a class later this summer, so stay tuned for that and make sure to sign up! Liz, stop in to Matty K’s for a well-deserved pair of free gloves for being so awesome!
