Testimonial from the July 4th Weekend:
It was a beautiful day to be in the gardens, and there were many visitors. Many of them told us that they heard about Bedrock Gardens when it was on Chronicle recently. When we signed up to volunteer, the job description said that there would be mostly standing. One person in the parking lot and one in the garden. We were pleasantly surprised when we were told that we would be working together in the shade of a beautiful tree where there were 2 benches.
John and Deb were very helpful. Deb greeted us and told us to first take a walk around the gardens to become familiar with the area. We did, and Deb explained our jobs and answered our questions when we returned. Our assignment was to greet guests, help them find their way to the beginning path, explain where they should go and answer questions. Guests were given a very informative brochure with the history and a map of the trails and gardens with sites of interest numbered and explained on the map.
We brought our water, masks, sunscreen, etc. It was a very enjoyable day for us and all the visitors with whom we spoke on their way out. They are open 10-4 on Tuesday – Friday and the first and third weekends of the month.
