Wonder, Learn, Grow… Volunteer!

Yew Dell has a dedicated group of volunteers with a large range of skills that help at special events or in day to day activities. We would love to have you join our group of wonderful volunteers!

Whatever your skills or experience, we have a project that could use your talent. Coming out to volunteer is a great way to meet new people, learn more about gardening, or develop a new skill. Yew Dell provides a beautiful outdoor setting to work in individually or as a group. We have opportunities that are great for novice gardeners, Master Gardeners, or even those who are not blessed with a green thumb.

  • New Volunteers Welcome: New Volunteer Orientations are scheduled Tuesday-Friday 10am-3pm. Orientations are one-on-one and typically last 30-45 minutes.
  • Training and materials are provided for all positions. Keep in mind if you are working outside that you will want to wear comfortable shoes and might want to wear something you don’t mind getting a little dirty.

We are open to suggestions. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Lindsay Duncan(502) 241-4788.

Volunteer Spotlight

This month, it was difficult to pick just one person for the Volunteer Spotlight. Back in the spring, a group of volunteers started working alongside Garden Manager-Ted Martini- in the Walled Garden. Since that first day in the garden, the Garden Adoption crew has grown in numbers and with so many folks involved, the Walled Garden looks more beautiful than ever! It has been wonderful watching this great group of people work together.
