The Berry Botanic Garden

The Berry Botanic Garden in SW Portland offers educational experiences galore for the novice gardener. They need volunteers to help with gardens, greenhouse, research, education, public relations, and administration. For example, the greenhouse volunteer position offers opportunities to assist horticultural staff, including planting seeds and cuttings, helping with transplanting and divisions, and helping maintain the greenhouse and nursery areas. This position is a weekly commitment from 9 a.m. to noon on Mondays, but most positions look fairly open-ended. Something to consider if you feel the itch for hands-on learning opportunities but can't afford to take classes.
