Camp Dodge Garden Expands AMC’s Forest Stewardship
by Chris “Goose” Grosjean with Bethany Taylor
I never expected to be a gardener. As a kid, I was the de facto laborer in my mother’s garden and always excited to have the weeding and watering over as soon as possible. Despite finding gardening work hard and boring, I gradually blossomed into a trail worker, which I suppose some folks might find just as tedious and laborious as I found gardening. However, I found something really fulfilling about working to preserve the public lands where crowds come to play. And, in general, the public lands are pretty good places to avoid gardening chores.
