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.


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.


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.


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.
