Do you love gardening or working outdoors with tools? Then we need you to join the Homestead Team.
Help rejuvenate the Redbud Hill Homestead at Jesse Jones Park. Some activities include debarking the logs, sharpening the woodshop tools, tending the herb and vegetable gardens, and maintaining the Akokisa Indian Village. All of these tasks are possible while social distancing.
No experience is needed, just an eagerness to learn.
RSVPs are required. The Homestead Team meets every Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. If you are interested in volunteering on other days and times, please contact the park. For more information and to RSVP, contact Historical Programs Coordinator Katrina Yordy at 281-446-8588 or email@example.com.
