My Golden Hills Sojourn (#327)

Winter seems to be, of late, my time of volunteering.  I like to think of it as my way of “paying it forward.”

2013 began with a park volunteer position at Edisto Island in South Carolina.  My free time was spent walking along the shores of the Atlantic and among live oaks cascaded with Spanish moss.

I visited with descendants of the Gullah-Geechee who still keep the elements of their African culture alive and enjoyed warm sunny days in the middle of the winter.

This year I am spending some time in the golden hills on the central coast of California. Volunteering at a local park I am once again paying it forward.  In exchange I get a campsite and access once again to the richness of our land.

    You couldn’t chose better sites for your volunteering jobs :) What does your job consist of exactly?

    • Nothing glamorous or exciting in the job itself. Some toll booth work, cleaning up litter, painting posts and clipping dead leaves off potted plants. But it affords me the opportunity to be outdoors, to help keep the park looking beautiful and enjoy giving back in a small but useful way.
