Horticulture


 
Jefferson Patterson Park is home to a variety of gardens; ranging from the formal gardens of the Patterson's home to the traditional Native American village garden. Over the years, park staff have also cultivated pollinator gardens, rain gardens, and themed native plant gardens.

​With the new horticulture position, we have a staff person dedicated to the care and interpretation of the gardens. Join us as a volunteer for garden workdays, attend an educational workshop, or just come to stroll the grounds as we enhance the park with native plants, food plants, and pollinator-friendly spaces.

This weekly volunteer meet-up is open to the public. Each session starts with a garden walk and an introduction to the work project that day. The work exchange is for perennial flowers, cuttings, seeds, herbs, and more (as available); as well as informal education around the garden’s functions, designs, and our strategies of tending the plants.

No training is required. Gloves and tools are provided or BYO.
