Who gives haircuts to all those Piet Oudolfian grasses at the Toronto Botanical Garden? In large part, it’s done by teams of volunteers. And you could be among them.
On Tuesday morning before class, I saw a team of about six people busily at work in the entry garden at the TBG. Sandra Pella, the horticulturist in charge, told me she works with a regular group of volunteers through the growing season, who commit to a morning a week.
If you have time, it would be a great way to be hands-on outdoors as you gain experience in these fascinating gardens.
