Familiarity with Microsoft Office software program is required.
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.
Current Internship Opportunities
We only provide formal internships to undergraduate and graduate students in Montgomery County and the Greater Washington, DC area as part of a degree program and/or for class credit.
