We currently have over 80 volunteers associated with our organization and welcome new volunteers who are interested in our mission. Susan Kelly maintains an email list of volunteers to keep them updated all year. There is no obligation and volunteer come to garden when they can. The emails inform everyone as to time, day and place for group gardening.
Caring for our gardens takes the majority of our volunteer time. We plant, weed, rake, water and deadhead. Some garden volunteers like to be assigned to work as part of a team at a designated space for an ongoing commitment, and others work on a more intermittent basis when a specific task needs a group effort such as tulip planting, spring clean-up, etc.
Tours of Stacy Boulevard will be on Sundays at 4:00 PM starting July 9th. They will begin at the Fishermen’s Wives Memorial and last for 45 minutes to an hour. The tour is about how the gardens came to be, why dahlias and the background and success of the volunteers who make Generous Gardeners a dynamic part of Gloucester.
If you are a volunteer and would like to review the background information, here is a link to download the PDF version of the PowerPoint.
Volunteering at one of our fundraising events is another way to participate. We also have a volunteer board of directors that keeps the organization focused on its mission and works with sponsors, grants, garden designers, website review, and finances.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email Susan Kelly at email@example.com and let her know of your interests!
