Seeking skilled volunteers to help redo landscaping around Solid Ground’s Wallingford building.
Master Gardener Volunteer Position
We are looking for skilled volunteers to help redo the landscaping around the outside of our office building in Wallingford. Our hope is to create a welcoming and inviting place for the people who visit the building, including those who access the food bank and the library. Master Gardener volunteers will “adopt a section” of our grounds, and tasks include advising about plants that do well without irrigation, designing and installing plantings, and helping maintain gardens.
Flexible hours, Monday-Friday between 9am-5pm
- Skills to create and provide advice on no-water garden plant selection and garden maintenance
- Willingness and ability to work with people from a variety of racial, cultural and economic backgrounds, with various lifestyles, sexual orientations, and of all ages
