Rochester New York’s ABC affiliate, WOKR-TV, featured Eden International Care Partner Award recipient Gregory Payne on their “Bright Spot” to close the evening news on 6/25.
Known to those at St. John’s Home as “Greg Grounds”, Payne convenes a weekly “Green Thumb Society”, helping the elders to start seedlings, and to plant flower and vegetable gardens at the home. The group also pots plants to deliver to visitors, and to those who cannot participate.
Greg read Bill’s book, “In the Arms of Elders” several months ago, and became an instant Eden Champion. His work, (which as the news report suggests, comes straight from the heart), has touched the lives of all who live and work at St. John’s.
