Greenwood Master Gardener Interns

Posted by Ron Wolford -

On Monday, March 12, we are doing an all volunteer day at Garfield Park Conservatory. This is a much broader scope than we offered for your Greenwood class. You are welcome to join us and hear about places to volunteer outside of the Greenwood area.

We have the Dusable Museum Garden in the works. Ron Wolford, Nancy Kreith and myself will be meeting with Dusable staff in the next week or so, then we will schedule the first meeting of the work group. Also, watch for volunteer opportunities at the new Gary Comer Youth Center in the Grand Crossing neighborhood at 7200 South Ingleside. More to come on this.

See Volunteer Activity Day Schedule below.
