Though he has always been enamored with plants, Montana quickly realized the true beauty of our green counterparts comes from their ability to unite and sustain communities. Montana has worked for multiple public gardens and a municipality tending many beautiful gardens, but throughout these experiences he attests that the stories he heard from volunteers and garden patrons were always the most rewarding part. Montana hopes to ensure generations will continue to enjoy the beauty and inspiration of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and BRIT in perpetuity. He also feels botanic gardens should reflect their region and people, and that volunteers play an essential role in cultivating this image through their continuous support and input. He is eager to continue advancing the GROW volunteer program and is excited to be a part of the community.
