You may have seen Muny So around Playford, he is hard to miss with his striking orange robes and beaming smile.
We recently sat down for a chat with Muny and his ‘sister’/translator Trish to find out a bit more about his volunteering, and his life in Playford.
As one of the valuable volunteers with the Playford Greening and Landcare Group, Muny is a very familiar face to Council’s Biodiversity Team. He has assisted in the nursery planting seedlings and planting out along Smith Creek Trail and, more recently, at Adams Creek over the past year.
His volunteering efforts in Adelaide’s Northern and Western suburbs are impressive. When we asked him where he has been volunteering, he handed over a five page document detailing all of his volunteer work for the past three years. He works mostly with environmental groups (cleaning up or planting out), in addition to assisting at community centres and food banks – and he particularly enjoys volunteering in Aged Care.
Muny says that “Volunteering is the path to help people.”
