Bryce Beard began work on Gilmour Academy's St. Br. André Service Program

Volunteered in Lower School Gardens 1.0 hrs

Along with other freshmen, I walked down to the greenhouse gardens at the Lower School during Community Block and volunteered for one hour for a second week. During this time, I met Mrs. Sanders and helped to weed and water the various beds within the gardens. We also helped to create compost to harvest new plants and vegetables and picked out new vegetables to set aside, adding to the collection we made in week one.


Are the service hours you completed COMPETENCE HOURS (learning about social justice issues) or COURAGE HOURS (direct or indirect service to others)?

COURAGE

Which Gilmour charism did you best live out through your service experience? Please explain.

I think I was best living out the charism of hospitality during this time. I was serving Mrs. Sanders, who needed our help and working towards the greater good of the garden during my free time. 

Would you try this service experience again? Why or why not?

Yes, I would definitely volunteer for this opportunity again. I saw it as rewarding and peaceful. This experience really showed me the true effort and responsibility that comes with maintaining a successful garden.

Along with other freshmen, I walked down to the greenhouse gardens at the Lower School during Community Block and volunteered for one hour for a third week. During this time, I met Mrs. Sanders and helped to prepare the gardens for the fall season. We also helped to create compost to harvest new plants and vegetables and picked out new vegetables to set aside, adding to the collection we made in weeks one and two.
