Looking for a regular gardening opportunity? Consider joining The Greenway Conservancy's Zone Garden program! We are looking for folks that are interested in regularly gardening on a contemporary park in downtown Boston. This is a great program for someone with previous gardening experience or for someone that has volunteered on The Greenway before!

Zone Garden Assistants work side-by-side with our horticulture team every week in established park zones to accomplish project goals and maintain our beautiful gardens. In this role, you can get to know The Greenway on a more intimate level and experience an area of the park like you never have before! Please read the full position description for this role and express interest by submitting a volunteer application, both available on our website at rosekennedygreenway.org/donate/volunteer/individual-opportunities.

Mission Statement

The Rose Kennedy Greenway is a ribbon of contemporary urban parks that connects people and the city of Boston by providing beauty, fun, and a sense of community in the heart of downtown.

Description

The Greenway is 1.5 mile long 15 acre ribbon of organically managed parks in the heart of Boston. The Greenway serves as the roof of the Central Artery tunnel that was the result of the Big Dig Project which has fundamentally transformed downtown Boston.

The Greenway Conservancy maintains and operates the Greenway through an agreement with the State of Masschusetts, which owns the Greenway and the tunnel beneath it.
