Please fill out the form below to sign up for the “Coffee Grounds” Weekly Volunteer Gardening Group.

Tuesdays from 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM
October 13th – [end date TBD depending on weather]

Come work with Awbury’s Landscape Manager and Landscape Team on weekly garden projects. Each week will have a different focus in a garden within the Historic Landscape. Take the opportunity to learn weeding, pruning, plant identification, and landscape maintenance hands on while discussing garden topics of interest.

All are welcome! All young adults and children age 17 or younger must be accompanied by an adult.  Please notify Karen upon registering of any limitations, allergies of concern, or special assistance needed.

Groups larger than 5 need to coordinate a separate volunteer day.  If you have a larger group please fill out the form on the Volunteer page to coordinate a separate project or register for a Seasonal Volunteer Project Day.

Meet at the white barn at the rear of the Cope House Parking lot (1 Awbury Rd, Philadelphia, PA)

All participants must wear a mask and able to work outside while wearing one.  Restrooms are use at your own risk as we have limited resources for cleaning throughout the day.

Please bring garden gloves if you have them, and dress appropriate for the weather and work in the nature. Closed toes shoes required.

In the case of inclement weather garden group may be canceled or the project changed.

All registered participants will be contacted directly by Karen.

THANK YOU for volunteering!
