Heritage Garden

Prescott Farm cultivates three beautiful garden spaces and needs your help to photograph their progress! These gardens attract many visitors and program participants throughout the year to learn about gardening and help us to promote our mission of connecting with the natural world one adventure at a time.

  • Heritage Garden: grows food for educational tasting, cooking, and nutrition programs
  • Learning Garden: program participants use this garden as an opportunity to experience gardening and make personal contact with the time-honored tradition
  • Perrenial Garden: large flower garden for visitors to enjoy and connect with nature

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with photography skills to document the lifecycles of different plants in the garden. This volunteer position will welcome you to a wonderful group of garden volunteers and you can enjoy the outdoors while practicing your photography skills!
