Pond cleaning.

s an assistant gardener, I help Liz Haegele, the curatorial intern, with whatever projects she's working on. My first semester, I spent a lot of time watering the containers in the Kohlberg courtyard. Recently, I've moved bags of topsoil, shoveled walkways, cleaned these gross, sticky bugs off of a big plant, and prepared beds for mulching. I've had the job just during my senior year, though I wish I'd started earlier!"
