Our Garden Volunteers enhance and maintain the lovely formal gardens at The Latimer House. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who enjoy gardening and for those who wish to learn about gardening in our climate and soil conditions. And, if you are new to our area, this is a wonderful opportunity to meet others who share your interest! The Garden Volunteers usually meet on alternate Tuesdays, but other times do occur.
