Volunteers are needed to:

  • Plant flowers and maintain garden, pruning, trimming, weeding, and ensuring plants receive adequate water. Volunteers should have knowledge of perennial garden care and have a general knowledge of house plant care. Our greenhouse plants change depending of what we can purchase at any given time and training will be provided if needed.
  • Maintain greenhouse indoor houseplants, repotting, watering, and pruning. Upkeep of inside and outside patio area.
  • Provide minimal customer service (volunteers may have minimal responsibilities for handling sales if they are interested in doing so)
  • Volunteers will not be interacting with clients/students, and a supervisor will be available at all times

Initially we are looking for one volunteer who can be at the hospital one day a week, hopefully beginning in April and through the end of summer/early fall.
