Volunteer

We currently have over 50 volunteers associated with our organization and welcome new volunteers who are interested in our mission.

Caring for our gardens takes the majority of our volunteer time. We plant, weed, rake, water and deadhead. Susan Kelly maintains an email list of interested helpers who are notified of the tasks, time and location each week (more often if necessary) and volunteers come when they are available to help. There is never any obligation or commitment. This is ongoing from early spring to late fall.

Our annual fundraising event is a summer garden tour in a neighborhood within our community. This is another way to volunteer with our organization by aiding with ticket sales or garden sitting. Many volunteers who find gardening physically taxing love to come and sit in a garden to guide visitors. Most years, over 600 people come from all over New England to experience our garden tour.

We also have a volunteer board of directors which keep the organization focused on its mission, and work with sponsors, grants, garden designers, website review, and finances.

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email Susan Kelly at susan@generousgardeners.org and let her know of your interests!
