Colonial Farm and Gardens Volunteers will work alongside staff to maintain the gardens on the National Colonial Farm, an historic outdoor museum that demonstrates 18th century agriculture. Stepping back in time, volunteers will channel creative ingenuity to utilize traditional agriculture techniques in order to maintain culturally diverse gardens of the past. Among the demonstration areas are the Kitchen Garden, the Museum Garden (Garden of Three Continents) , and Cate’s Garden, each with unique stories to tell.
Responsibilities may include:
During the growing season: planting, weeding, watering, pest management, harvesting, and seed saving.
- During the off-season: starting seed, prepping beds, caring for seedlings, planning for the season.
