Do you love gardening or working outdoors with tools? Then we need you to join the Homestead Team and help rejuvenate the Redbud Hill Homestead at Jesse Jones Park.
Some activities include debarking the logs, sharpening the woodshop tools, maintaining the herb and vegetable gardens, and maintaining the Akokisa Indian Village. All of these tasks can easily be done with social-distancing. No experience is needed, just an eagerness to learn.
The Homestead Team meets every Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. We may also be able to accommodate volunteers on other days of the week with advanced notice. Ages 12 and older welcome. Volunteers under the age of 18 require a parental consent form and volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Families and groups are welcome.
For more information and to RSVP, please contact volunteer coordinator Brent Wilkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-446-8588.
To reconnect people with the outdoors and bring to life our area’s natural history and pioneer heritage.
