Posted by Ron Wolford -

General support of gardens and greenhouse volunteers requested this fall on Tuesdays 9 a.m. - 2 p.m., Wednesdays, Noon - 8 p.m., Thursdays, 1 - 3 p.m., and Saturdays, Noon - 3 p.m. Volunteers can work anytime during these hours. Please note, there is a strong volunteer team for Wednesdays. During this fall, I will be leading after school programming from 2 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Volunteers coming during this time will be directed by a note board. Call or e-mail to let me know when you can come!

Preschool Programming
Thursdays 8 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
10 week program

Preschool programming starts Thursday, September 28 and will run through December 7.
I am looking for 1-2 volunteers who enjoy working with toddlers to engage them in the natural world. There are two groups (3 year olds) and (4-5 year olds) and a 1 hour program is scheduled for each.

Volunteers interested in this position please call, Kirsten Akre, at 773-685-3359 or e-mail me, for more information or to set up an interview. Volunteers selected for this program will be required to complete the Chicago Park District Volunteer Application and Background Check.

Thanks to Master Gardeners for your tremendous support of the Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse!
