Elderberry Wisdom Farm is seeking volunteers who would like to learn Native American habitat restoration while working with our cohort of Native American interns. We are tending our elderberry plants this fall and expanding the patch to include some new elderberry plants. We are weeding around the 20 plants that we have already planted. We will then expand the patch by planting 50 new plants. Volunteers will work with the team every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon this fall between 2-4 pm.

All activities are outside and are COVID-19 safe. Please dress for the weather.
