Saturday, January 28th
9am – 2pm
The Mobile Botanical Gardens is reviving the MBG Cavalry Volunteer program! Amanda Wilkins, curator of collections, would like to invite you out for a volunteer workday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on January 28 to help clean up the Kosaku Sawada WinterGarden. Tasks will include weeding, raking, cleaning pine needles out of the shrubs and trees, and some pruning. MBG is hosting an afternoon tour with the International Camellia Society folks on Valentine’s Day and we would love to represent the best of Mobile’s Camellias to our visitors. Any help you can give would be most appreciated. Please contact Amanda if you would like to help. We will meet at the Piff Courtyard, near the office.
Additionally, if you are not able to make it out for the workday or you are more able to help with Camellia-related office work, please still feel free to contact Amanda, as she is updating the records and labels for the Camellias in the garden and would love any help!
Look out for future volunteer announcements! If you would like to come out to the garden to help any other time, please let us know.
