Hollister House Garden is looking to add some new garden enthusiasts to its volunteer staff for the 2019 season. Volunteers welcome visitors to the garden during our public visiting hours and assist in hosting lectures and special events.
“We rely on our volunteers to play a key role in representing the garden to visitors and event guests” says George Schoellkopf, creator of Hollister House Garden and president of the board of directors. “Volunteers appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the garden and provide information for our visitors from all around the world.”
Ideal volunteer candidates should be friendly, reliable and enjoy meeting the public. An interest in and enthusiasm for gardens is encouraged, however gardening expertise is not required. Volunteers are invited to several special events exclusively for volunteers during the season.
For more information, plan to attend one of our volunteer information sessions are Saturday, April 13th 10am and Sunday, April 14th, 4pm. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-868-2200.
