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.

  • 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

Nanette Dietmeyer has been involved at Yew Dell since 2005. She first came out to curate our hydrangea collection. Soon after, her involvement expanded to Saturday workdays, Plant Sale, and so much more. In 2016, Nanette helped spearhead the All American Selection Trial Beds project. Thanks to her efforts, Oldham County Master Gardeners adopted this project and have kept it going ever since. We are so lucky to have Nanette’s dedication and top notch gardening skills. Thanks for keeping our gardens growing, Nanette!
