Looking for a place to volunteer which is close to home, where you can reap the reward of your labor and be a part of the National Park Service?
Morristown National Historical Park is where America survived the harsh winter of 1779-1780 during the American Revolutionary War. Part of our story is found in two historical gardens.
The Wick garden is in its original location where Henry Wick's family settled in 1750. The Wick family had a kitchen/ herb/ medicinal garden. Garden volunteers meet on Tuesday mornings from April through November.
The Cross Gardens, established by Julia Cross and Clarence Fowler in 1930 as an English country house tradition garden. Garden volunteers meet on Wednesday mornings from April through November.
Both gardens challenge the garderner in all of us, with pleasant rewards.
Activities include, but not limited to: watering, grooming, planting, weeding, light trimming, pruning, deadheading, with the ability to listen and learn to follow instructions from experienced gardeners. A basic knowledge of gardens tools is necessary.
