Cooking is something I love, it brings such a sense of peace within, and sharing what I’ve cooked brings joy within……I’ve been spending a lot of time at my community kitchen the Peterson Garden Project(PGP) (http://www.petersongarden.org/ ) volunteering and fellowshipping with my community members. The mission of PGP is to teach community members how to grow and cook their own foods, I don’t have the space to garden but always wanted to, this year I’m so excited to have a community plot to grow my own food!! After inquiring about how to obtain a garden spot I was informed the plots go quickly, I was determined to get a spot at the garden I desired, so I set my alarm to guarantee I would secure my place……registration opened at 8am and I entered my credit card information at 8:01am…..I’m so excited to have my plot and can’t wait to garden with my community members this year!! Living my life on purpose also led me to another heart desire, as a pediatric nurse who no longer works in a clinical setting, I wanted to do something positive for the children in my community, something I would enjoy and would complement my schedule….well I did not have to search long, at a recent social event, in conversation I mentioned how I wanted to work with children in my community, and just like that I was contacted….literally the next day. Now I’ll be reading with children at an elementary school a stone’s throw away from my abode!
