GAINES – Eileen Sorochty is out today weeding a garden in front of Farmers’ Hall at the Cobblestone Museum.

Sorochty is training to become a master gardener, a role that requires at least 50 hours of community service each year. She is pulling Bishop’s Weed from the garden. The weed was crowding out some Daylilies.

Sorochty of Albion is retired from Brockport State College. She worked as an administrative assistant in the college advancement department.

She also is helping the Cobblestone Museum with another garden near the bathrooms behind the Cobblestone Universalist Church.
