This blog is focused on my park mentor Bob Mackenzie. He is the person to go to if you want to know more about the formal gardens at the Adams house and about many of the trees and plants that are located at my park. He is one of the nicest and most inspirational people I know here and continues to make people smile during a rough day. Bob started working at this park 25 years ago when they needed someone to look after the gardens on days that no one else wanted to do. He then became a full time employee at the park when they recognized this performance in horticulture.
Another person I would like to talk about is Steven McCarthy. He is a seasonal employee who works at the park with all of us and does some of the most professional work I have ever seen. Once upon a time… Steven started off as a branching out intern on the field team and later on did some landscape maintenance with his dad who works for the park service. He has a lot of knowledge in this type of work because of his father. This year he applied to this job because it fits his interests in his future. He currently goes to Bridgewater State where he majors in fitness with a minor in recreation. I enjoy working with him and is a funny person to be around. I believe that the other employees here including myself can learn a thing from him.
