  • There are special projects that bring together a small group of volunteers to accomplish a particular task, for example, planting a flower bed or picking ripe apples. These tasks are available periodically throughout the year. Such as transplanting plugs, planting anuals, mulching, weeding, and garden clean up.

  • Another opportunity is available every week but the task may vary depending on what needs to be done. A volunteer signs up to volunteer on Wednesdays in the Lower Garden for example. During that shift they may be asked to deadhead flowers, rake paths, weed, etc. depending on the need that day. It is also possible for a volunteer to "adopt" a planting such as the Butterfly Garden or the Welcome Garden under this type of opportunity.
