The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Assist in maintaining the ABC medicinal theme gardens on our 2.5 acre property. There are currently over 30 theme gardens, a few of which are: human systems garden, culinary cuisine gardens, as well as Ayurvedic and TCM medicinal gardens. For more info on the gardens, refer to the Virtual Garden link on our website (www.herbalgram.org)
Assistance comes in the form of weeding, plant propagation and transplanting, occasional building of beds, watering, pruning, as well as harvesting and cleaning seeds. It is a wonderful opportunity to spend time outdoors and learn about medicinal plants.
We are looking for volunteers who have organic gardening experience and who would be able to commit to at least 4 hours per week. Ideal volunteers should be free from physical injury and must have the ability to push/pull 50#. Times for volunteering are available from 8am-2:30pm, M-F. Occasionally there is a Saturday garden work day.
