Fred Fletcher Garden Volunteer


Project Description:

Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources is seeking individuals interested in volunteering for the Fred Fletcher Garden Volunteer Program.


Fred Fletcher park is a 22-acre public garden. It is the former campus of the Methodist Home for Children and was purchased by the City in 1982.


Volunteer Duties:

We are seeking volunteers to assist with general horticultural maintenance. Volunteers will attend on-site training, lead by Parks staff, outlining the basics of landscape gardening - including weeding, pruning, and planting. Volunteer workdays will occur on Fridays from 8 a.m. - noon based on staff's availability.


Work Environment:

Volunteers will be working outside, so please dress for the weather. Volunteers need to wear loose, comfortable clothing that can get dirty as well as closed-toe shoes.


Volunteer Requirements:

This is an ongoing, year-long opportunity. To volunteer, you must be at least 18 years old. After attending training, volunteers are needed to assist weekly. A volunteer application and background form must be completed and passed in order to participate.


Per department policy this event cannot count towards court-appointed or suggested community service hours.
