Cultivate a beautiful community space by helping maintain the ornamental gardens at Willow-Witt Ranch. Located around the historic farmhouse, these gardens surround spaces used for education and community events. Tasks may include planting, trimming, weeding, transplanting, digging and mulching. Tasks will reflect the seasons and work to transform the garden into a high-quality habitat for wildlife and pollinators. No experience necessary!

The Crest at Willow-Witt is an educational non-profit organization based at Willow-Witt Ranch, in the mountains of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument east of Ashland, Oregon. Through self-guided tours, public events, school programs, and summer camps, we help visitors of all ages explore their roles and responsibilities in our dynamic local ecosystems.
The Crest offers wetland restoration and gardening volunteer work parties during the warmer months at Willow-Witt Ranch, April through October. We also provide Outdoor School programming to 5th and 6th graders in Southern Oregon, offer community education programs, and run several weeks of Nature Day Camps during the summer.
