Every second Saturday of the month, join us for volunteer work days from 9am-noon. Depending on the season, activities in the past have included planting, raking, mulching, and clearing nature trails. Yew Dell volunteer days are a great way to learn about horticulture and how to improve your garden at home. And what better place to volunteer than the beautiful, tranquil setting of Yew Dell Gardens.
Volunteers are asked to bring a mask, water bottle, gloves and insect repellent. Mask must be worn when working within 6 feet of other staff/volunteers/visitors to ensure adherence to CDC recommendations for COVID-19. All volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes for safety. Tools will be provided.
Plan to arrive no later than 9am. Our Garden and Arboretum Manager and/or Horticulture Apprentices will meet you at our Visitor Center, get you checked in, and guide you to the project you'll be working on. Have questions? Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 502-241-4788, ext. 1002 or email@example.com.
The mission of Yew Dell Gardens is to continue the horticultural legacy of Theodore Klein; to encourage exploration of the arboretum, gardens and extraordinary architectural setting; and to provide opportunities for education, enrichment and enjoyment.
Yew Dell Botanical Gardens is dedicated to garden education, exquisite display and research into new and superior plants for the region. The grounds boast an impressive collection of unusual plant specimens, outstanding gardens in a wide array of styles, and unique buildings including a stone castle, extensive fieldstone walls and a Cotswold's-styled fieldstone house. Garden classes are offered for all groups including school children, homeowners, avid gardeners and green-industry professionals. Ongoing research involves collection and evaluation of a wide variety of garden plants as well as breeding and selection to develop new plants for regional gardens. Community and rental events round out the rapidly growing slate of annual offerings.
We'll work with your schedule.
