2. Garden and Corporate Volunteers:
GardenWorks – Willowwood always needs many helpful hands to clean up debris in the gardens and through the trails Spring through Fall. Plus maintaining Willowwood’s beautiful gardens takes constant dedication and enthusiastic teamwork – year ’round! The Horticulture Staff is very grateful for the help of Corporate teams as well as the weekly hands on Gardenworks Program Volunteers comprised of Friendly Master Gardeners and Happy Amateurs who learn and work together at the gardens one weekday morning assisting our horticulture staff.
Many local companies have helped by bringing their corporate teams for a “work day” at Willowwood and have performed miracles. A great day in the Outdoors and the Opportunity for instant gratification!
