Video: UO gardener John Kraft finds beauty in his career

The University of Oregon campus maintenance staff often goes unnoticed for all the hard work they do to keep campus looking beautiful year-round. Gardener John Kraft is one of these people. His love for the environment and appreciation of nature’s beauty has kept him motivated to wake up every day at 4:30 a.m. for the last 7 1/2 years. Even as he is set to retire at the end of December, it’s clear he has enjoyed every day making campus look its best.
