Andrea Masisak, the new Volunteer Coordinator for the Elizabeth Park Conservancy in West Hartford is reaching out to friends in the horticultural community seeking volunteers at Elizabeth Park. She would like to get a group of certified master gardeners to come in. They would especially need the help in April, May and June as they ready the park for our premier event, Rose Weekend, in June, but can can schedule volunteers at any time during the growing season.
Elizabeth Park is home to the nation’s oldest municipal rose garden which numbers 15,000 roses. Additionally, there is a bulb/annual garden, shade garden, perennial garden and historic greenhouses. It is the horticultural jewel in the crown of the Hartford park system. The Conservancy is charged with the maintenance and preservation of the gardens, and we rely on the goodwill of volunteers to help us in our mission.
Please contact Andrea with any questions.
