MONTICELLO, Ill. (WCIA) — Allerton Park is looking for volunteers who are interested in getting their hands dirty.
Two different garden projects are in need of helpers this Thursday through Saturday. No specific skills are needed.
Staff will be doing the heavy-lifting. Volunteers will just need to dress ready to work outside with close-toed shoes and have about four hours to get at it.
“We’re a historic place out here, and so whenever we renovate some of these gardens to make them historically accurate, it’s kindof like you’re becoming a part of history, so the way that Robert Allteron designed some of these gardens, we’re renovating them to make them more the way that he wanted it, so when you’re a part of it, you’re really kindof becoming a part of that,” said Allterton Public Outreach Coordinator Mindy Brand.
Anyone interested in volunteering will need to fill out a volunteer appliction on Allerton’s website here.
