Volunteer will work at the Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC), a private 501 (c) (3) non-profit partner to the National Park Service in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. PEEC advances environmental education and sustainable living through hands-on experiences in a national park. PEEC's campus is an adapted and recycled Pocono Mountain honeymoon resort that gives all who come to visit a chance to experience the Pocono Mountains at their best. Gardeners will work in the gardens on PEEC's campus performing seasonal chores including: preparing the soil, planting, weeding, and harvesting. Garden areas include the rain gardens, the butterfly garden, and the greenhouse. Spend time working outside in beautiful, peaceful garden areas and when harvests are bountiful, some crops will be available for you. Training is available. Gardening experience is a plus, but not necessary. Flexible hours. Late Spring and early Fall are the busiest times for the gardens. A few hours every two weeks would be sufficient; more hours are available for interested parties.

Interested volunteers must be able to work with little to no supervision and should contact Derek Scott at 570-828-2310 ext. 234 or for more details.
