Revived as the site of a Community Supported Agriculture program, Powisset Farm in Dover, Massachusetts features a trail that explores woodlands, fields, and wetlands. Currently the farm could use the loving touch of a gardener to help keep her beautiful! The farm has several perennial flower beds, a cutting flower garden, a raised vegetable bed and an herb garden which would benefit from a bit of attention. If your passion is gardening, and you have a few hours a week to spare, we would enjoy sharing this amazing property with you! This position would be perfect for a creative individual who has a flexible schedule, enjoys the outdoors, and has a basic knowledge of gardening. Our stewardship and farm staff will work with the volunteer to determine gardening needs and priorities. The ideal candidate should be equally at home working independently as well as on a team.
* Working with staff to assess gardening needs
* Planting and/or transplanting annuals and perennials as well as maintaining existing beds
