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.
March – November between 9am – 12pm.
- New Volunteers Welcome: Volunteer Orientations are scheduled the second Thursday of every month from 5-6pm. Click here to sign up for Orientation.
- 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.
This month, we are celebrating Ruth and Larry Nix! This dynamic duo has been involved at Yew Dell since 2007. Their involvement increased last year when they decided to volunteer every Wednesday in the gardens. No matter the project, Ruth and Larry always pitch in. They pull weeds, clean ponds, plant bulbs and everything else in between. This year, they decided to adopt the Walled Garden. They have kept the Walled Garden beautiful for visitors to enjoy and even donated a table and chair set for their adopted area!. Larry continues to come out and pressure wash the furniture when needed. Ruth and Larry were rock stars in the Plant Holding Area for Plant Sale this past Saturday. Everything they do is so greatly appreciated. They have the best sense of humor, are SO much fun to work with and have gone above and beyond to display their love for the gardens. We love these two! Thanks, Larry and Ruth, for all that you do!
