With all the rain we have had this season, the need for lots of work in the gardens is guaranteed. Before we know it, buds will be opening and plants will be poking through the soil. This is a great time to volunteer to be part of our many activities. New and returning volunteers are always welcome.

Jim Schlitt, one of our volunteer gardeners, tackles the ornamental grass in the Perennial Border. As you can see, the grass almost overpowers Jim, but he manages to get the grass pruned in short order.
The Holiday Open House brings volunteers, staff and guests together to celebrate the season and enjoy tables full of delicious food prepared by all. Volunteers are enjoying the food and the friendship of other volunteers.
