Volunteer at Edgewood Garden

We are starting a new program:  Volunteer at Edgewood Garden.
Become a Veggie! (VEG, get it?)
Volunteer days will include lunch (soup and salad provided, bring a sandwich) on work days. Activities will include weeding, planting, pruning, deadheading, raking, propagating, potting --- the usual light garden tasks.

What's in it for me, you ask? 

1) You will be able to attend any of our "Volunteer Teas" at Edgewood garden with scones and cucumber sandwiches and all that, which will be exclusively for Volunteers AND their guests.
2) You will have a chance to buy cards, books, sachets, or other Edgewood Garden "stuff" at a 20% discount.
3) You will get free plants from garden divisions, cuttings, seedlings and purchases to plant in YOUR garden.
4) You will have your name added to our Volunteer Plaque in the garden (and even some pictures on the website!).
5) You will get to see the garden at times of the year when it is not open to the public.
6) We will  have guest lecturers to give demonstrations/talks about various garden tasks/activities on specified Volunteer days. TBA.
7) Share in the fruit and vegetables from the garden, as available.
