We encourage everyone to volunteer. Whether you are already a historical preservationist or just a first time gardener, it takes all of us to run this house. There are no paid staff. Please let us know what you are interested in doing and we will  find a job for you. We can take groups or individuals. Start by coming to a work party on the 3rd Sunday of each month! or just with a phone call.
