Yes, You are Needed
This park is a labor of love, but the two of us cannot make it work alone. We have had some WONDERFUL volunteers. We would be delighted to have a few more great ones! Please take a minute to review our volunteer opportunities, a brief description on how to become a volunteer -- and our Special Thanks to current and past volunteers.
We have had all sorts of volunteers. Some were family and/or friends first. All felt like family in the end. Volunteers can help with projects or services like:
gardening (vegetable or flower)
building construction or repair
general maintenance (e.g., mowing or weeding)
parties or special events
programs (e.g., class or demonstration)
something we have not thought of?
How to Become a Volunteer
If you would like to volunteer some of your time -- contact us and we will be happy to work with you to match your interests and abilities.
Please Note: As much as we appreciate the help, we cannot accept unaccompanied volunteers under the age of eighteen (it is a supervision and liability issue).
The following have provided special assistance to the planning, development and maintenance of the park.

Thank You ALL for Your Support.
