Pharmacy Garden at The Farmers' Museum


The Farmers’ Museum is looking for gardeners who would like to help in our beautiful, historic gardens.

If you enjoy learning about the care and upkeep of historic plants, gardens and landscape, then this is an opportunity you do not want to miss! Your time would be spent weeding and cleaning of garden and path areas; trimming and pruning; planting and replanting, as needed, using appropriate varieties of plants; watering, fertilizing, feeding and mulching as required; monitoring of gardens for insects and pests; opening of gardens in the spring and closing in the fall. We welcome volunteers who enjoy talking with the public and are willing to do demonstrations. We are seeking individuals who are enthusiastic about learning and sharing ideas!

Whether you are free for an hour or eight, any time you spending helping will not go unnoticed and will be very much appreciated!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions; or 607-547-1462.
