Lendonwood Gardens depends heavily on the contribution of time and effort by a cadre of volunteer gardeners to help maintain the beauty and growth of plantings in the six-acre public botanical garden.
Volunteer gardeners help plant, fertilize, mulch, prune and weed to help Lendonwood retain its appeal as one of the finest small botanical gardens in the four-state area. Coordinated by Linda Moore of Grove, a Master Gardener, the group is trained in good gardening techniques as they volunteer their time.
Each Wednesday and Thursday have been designated "Gardening Days" at Lendonwood, with volunteers contributing as much time as they wish. Some volunteers may garden an hour or two, and others may spend three to four hours. Any level of assistance in maintaining Lendonwood's beauty is greatly appreciated.
Timing of group gardening efforts will vary with the weather. The group usually meets at 10 a.m. during April, May, September and October. During the hotter months of June, July and August, the group starts gardening at 8 a.m.
A few volunteers elect to work independently after completing an orientation. Some volunteers prefer to help with bigger projects and can be contacted when some special effort is needed.
