The Trustees of Reservations, Southeast Region

Opportunity Overview
Nestled within Chappaquiddick Island on Martha's Vineyard is our intimate Japanese-style garden, Mytoi, which offers natural serenity and a place of contemplation to visitors who venture here. Currently, our garden gem could use the loving touch of a few additional volunteers to help keep her beautiful by assisting staff with ongoing garden tasks. If your passion is gardening, and you have a few hours to spare, we would love to have your help! This would be perfect for creative individuals who have flexible schedules, enjoy the outdoors, and have a basic knowledge of gardening. Our staff will work with the volunteer to determine the garden’s needs and priorities. The ideal candidate should be equally at home working independently as well as on a team.
