Sam Brown is entering his second year volunteering at the Dig It! Gardens.
The 29-year-old helps out every Thursday in the Auckland-based gardens, and also helps out in Northland when he can.
“I go up North frequently for work and to see my family, so I help out there when I can, getting their garden started.”
Sam came into contact with the gardens through our staff member Rob Furness and, along with Rob, provides some much-needed manual labour support. “The ladies give me all the heavy jobs. I help out with mulching and cleaning too.”
Sam’s favourite part about working in the gardens is the opportunity he’s had to meet a lot of new people and get to know them well. He’s a well-known face around CCS Disability Action!
