Volunteer: Wookworking at Awbury

Please fill out the form below to sign up to be an Awbury Woodworker

Tuesdays from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
March 3rd to December 3rd

Every week Awbury Woodworking Participants engage in building, repairing, and planning for all built items pertaining to the Awbury Arboretum Landscape. These items include but are not limited to: birdhouses, benches, signs, and natural play materials. Woodworkers also have creative freedom by utilizing natural wood within the landscape to create fundraising items for Awbury’s Seasonal Community Events including the Egg Hunt on April 20 th and Holiday Open House and Greens Sale on December 7th.  All funds raised aid in continuing to establish the Awbury Wood Workshop with tools and materials for future projects. This is an ongoing opportunity to collaborate with like-minded individuals, and use your interest to help Awbury Arboretum.

All participants should be 18 or older and feel comfortable to work with tools in a safe manner. No skills required – just a willingness to learn and participate.

Meet at the white barn at the rear of the Cope House Parking lot, 1 Awbury Rd, Phila, PA.   Follow signs for alternative parking if the parking lot is full. 

THANK YOU for volunteering!
