Some reflections on my one month anniversary
In this first month, I've taken part in meetings of all of the committees of GardenShare, a Board of Directors retreat and regular meeting, participated in our annual Growing Community Social and helped present the Growing Community Award, and met a lot of people who are passionate about GardenShare's mission and work.
It's been tiring and exciting, frustrating and stimulating, overwhelming and filled with positive energy, all at once!
I got to revisit Foodshare last week for my official, public retirement party, and that experience only confirmed for me that I have made the right decision.
While I may have had moments of exhaustion or frustration this past month, I have also been inspired by people's passion for this work. While I recognize the challenges that GardenShare faces, I see tremendous opportunity and untapped potential. And while I love the North Country with all my heart, when I look around, I can't help but see the needs in this region.
Thank you for being there with GardenShare. Thank you for inspiring me with your support.
Together, we are making a difference. And I look forward to working with you and doing even more in the coming months and years.
