Massachusetts Horticultural Society at Elm Bank has some wonderful year-round volunteer opportunities!
Recent budgetary changes have impacted MHS staffing. We are turning to you, our dedicated team of volunteers, and asking for your help in carrying out numerous day-to-day tasks in support of various Elm Bank operations. Your valuable time is very important now to allow MHS to continue offering adults and children the opportunity to experience, enjoy and learn about plants and the environment in the exquisite setting of Elm Bank.
We are currently in need of volunteers who are able to volunteer with a somewhat regular commitment of time to become involved in the following areas of MHS activities at Elm Bank:
Front Desk Staff – provide general information in person and by telephone from the MHS Educational Building.
Flora Gift and Garden Shop Staff – sales and shop keeping assistance in our gift shop, especially as we prepare for the holiday season.
Accounting Department – assist with accounting related clerical duties as we prepare reports, duties include filing or working with spreadsheets.
Functions at MHS – assist the rental function department with scheduling and planning for special occasions held at Elm Bank. Please reply via phone (617) 933-4921 or email [email protected], and let us know which type of volunteer position you are interested in filling. General hours of duty are 10am to 2pm, Monday – Friday. Please be sure to include your telephone number in your voice mail / reply, and which days are best for you during the week.
Thank you for your past service, letters and gifts. Your individual service and dedication are a huge contribution in our effort to continue our most fundamental programs including horticultural education, Master Gardeners and the Flower Show.
We look forward to hearing from you soon and welcoming you back to Elm Bank!
And I look forward to meeting you!
Most sincerely yours,
Functions and Volunteers Coordinator
