Volunteers Needed to Prep the Gardens!

In addition to getting the pumpkins ready for display for Spirits in the Gardens, our horticulture team needs help from volunteers to prepare the grounds and gardens for the colder months ahead. Thousands of tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth bulbs must be planted before the ground freezes. There are additional fall garden and grounds projects to be completed before our Spirits in the Gardens event on October 21-23. Gardening/horticulture experience is not required to participate! (see below for link to "How do I...? Plant Bulbs" video).

If gardening isn't your style, check out our other volunteer need: stenciling and carving pumpkins for Spirits in the Gardens!

Volunteers are encouraged to visit the Gardens in the springtime to see their beautiful results!
