Garden/Orchard Volunteer at Historic Stewart Farm

Garden Volunteer at Historic Stewart Farm

 

 

 

Attention green thumbs!  A secret garden circa 1900 awaits at Historic Stewart Farm in South Surrey!  As a person who appreciates organic growing and seed preservation, you will help tend the heirloom gardens which have plants that Mrs. Stewart herself could have planted. 

 

You have an interest in getting your hands dirty and seeing what your dirty work can create!

 

Garden volunteers are asked to commit 6-8 hours per month during gardening season, including one monthly Saturday Garden Bee session.

 

If tending a unique garden in one of the most beautiful settings in Surrey is appealing to you, please fill out the application form. For more information, email heritagevolunteers@surrey.ca or call 604-502-6461.
