|Volunteers in the Gardens
Anyone who has the desire. We invite experienced gardeners and beginners to help us keep Charlottesville's flower gardens beautiful.
We will share our knowledge and skills with the beginners and we invite the experienced gardeners to come and share their knowledge with us!
Whether you are young or old, a city resident or a county resident, you can help. Please consider giving us a hand.
Just give us a call at (434) 970-3558 and we will be happy to send you an application. As soon as we organize our group of volunteers, we will all gather together and discuss our plans for the gardens.
How does it work?
We will furnish all tools and supplies. All you need to do is show up.
We will never ask you to apply any pesticides or chemicals except fertilizer.
You can set your own hours and amount of time that you are willing to contribute. If the garden you have volunteered to maintain proves to be more than you can handle, you can simply turn it back over to us.
Due to safety concerns, we must limit areas where volunteers can work.
The bottom line is that we need your help! We can no longer depend on tax dollars alone to keep the city parks beautiful. But there is another reason. These are your flower beds and your neighborhood parks. You deserve a chance to share in the excitement and satisfaction that come with tending them from day to day.
Everyone! You get a chance to give back to the community and become involved in your area's flower gardens. We get a chance to concentrate on areas most in need of maintenance. Everyone is a winner!
