Current Volunteer Opportunities


Special Events Volunteer: 
Special Events volunteers help out as needed for large programs such as the annual Montgomery County History Conference in January, History Day in March, Heritage Days in June, and for community fairs and festivals throughout the year.


Garden Volunteer: 
Garden Volunteers are needed for tending our Medicinal Garden and the plant beds surrounding the Beall-Dawson and Stonestreet Museums located near downtown Rockville. Volunteers work under the direction of a master gardener a few hours per week helping with weekly weeding, yearly mulching and planting, and garden cleanup. This is a perfect opportunity to learn about herbs and the medicines that were made from them.

Volunteers with some knowledge of plants and flowers who can commit to a weekly or biweekly schedule are preferred. Familiarity with garden tools is required and, while we have a limited number of tools on–site, having your own tools would be helpful. A small amount of training will be involved to make sure the volunteers are familiar with the property.
