OWNERSHIP:  Take responsibility for your actions

Be responsible for your thoughts, feelings, words, and actions.  “Own” the choices you make and the results that follow. 


An interview with Chase Maxon, Group Manager of the Stuart Mesa Garden.   

by Terri Sandaran and Chyanne Bohner


Q:  What does it mean to take care of the garden? 


A:  It means we show ownership and responsibility for the garden and we are learning how to be social entrepreneurs. 


Q:  What are your goals for the garden?


A:  The goals we have to reach in the garden are to plant more plants, make gravel pathways, fix the fence and make it better than it already is. 


Q:  How do you keep your group motivated and organized? 


A:  I look for the people who don’t know what to do and then I instruct them to either water the plants or help others that may need help raking leaves or tending the plants.  We have a plan before we come out to the garden. 


Q:  Why did you choose the garden project over the others? 


A:  It sounded more doable and worthwhile than the other projects and the group is good at it.  The garden will also help us if there is ever a zombie apocalypse, because the zombies eat only meat, so plants will be a good alternative. 


Q:  Have your feelings about the garden changed over time? 


A:  It has definitely made our group feel like they have done a good job and take ownership for it. 


Q:  What kind of impact has the project had on the community? 


A:  The teachers are starting to notice that we’re out here working on the garden and the group takes pride in that
