Here at Yew Dell, our gardens are constantly changing and needs for volunteer assistance vary from season to season. Our Monthly Monday Workdays which occur the 3rd Monday of each month from 1pm-4pm are a great place to get involved! Anyone age 14 and older is welcome! We really encourage small groups (10 or less) to come participate in these workdays as well. Volunteers engage in activities like weeding, pruning, mulching, raking, planting, cleaning and so much more. You'll work alongside skilled horticulturists who will provide instructions and training. This is a great way to foster a sense of community, celebrate the beauty of gardening and learn from some of the greatest horticulturists in the region!

If you or your group are interested, please contact Laura Ryan, Yew Dell Volunteer Coordinator, at laurar@yewdellgardens.org. Thanks for your interest!
