  • Horticulture Green Team
    Description & Apply:

    There are several different teams of this horticultural help. One team is made up of those that help with the transplanting and care of seedlings.

These people must be able to work outside and be able to get down to ground level to do the planting. The next team is involved with watering and weeding the flowerbeds once they are planted. The last team is made up of those people that want to receive more in-depth training in the care of perennial flowerbeds. These volunteers will be required to provide a minimum number of volunteer work hours to receive this special training.
