The Sinkler Garden at The Highlands is a two-acre walled garden designed by Wilson Eyre in 1918, inviting new volunteers to assist with planting and maintenace Wednesday mornings begining April 5. Early in the season, opportunities for Spring Clean-up (raking, weeding, edging, clipping shrubs, planting) abound, to be followed by maintenance and periodic refreshing of the perennial beds with additional plantings. At the end of the season, cleaning up the perennial beds and "putting them to bed" for the winter becomes the focus. A gardener will be on site to direct projects, and for volunteers to work alongside with.
