Hi Master Gardeners,
I am looking for a few folks to help me with the fledgling courtyard garden at the FMC.This garden is in its' third season and is located on the third floor of the Women and Infants Center at the hospital. The courtyard is bound in by the sky-walk on one side and the Women and Infant unit on the other. All plants are grown in containers. It is a small piece of natural respite within the hospital and it has a good deal of potential for growth and design. This summer we are having a local artist, Karen Knorowski, mosaic a garden bench for us, which will add year round color. I am also hoping to add two moveable plantar/trellises and grow some ornamental gourds.
I am looking for 2-3 volunteers who would be able to spend @ .5 hours per week watering, deadheading, sweeping, checking the drip lines.... I especially need help in the summer months of June- September. Patients, families and staff are so thankful to have the space; it makes for a really positive volunteering experience!
Any volunteers have to go through the FMC volunteer orientation which is similar to the training the Olivia white Hospice volunteers must go through. If interested please contact me, Ann Brown at 938.863.8254 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
