Volunteer CenterMany Volunteer positions are available through the Anne Arundel County Volunteer Center. If you do not see an opportunity below that fits your needs, contact the Volunteer Center at [email protected] or 410-897-9207. Check our Website:www.aacvc.org. A few current volunteer opportunities are listed below.

Anne Arundel County Dept. of Recreation and Parks

Downs Park in Pasadena is seeking a gardener who can tend to the rambling rose bushes and a rose arbor within Mother’s Garden. Mother’s Garden is a focal point with the park that is also used/reserved for weddings and photo shoots. The work would involve cutting back the roses in the spring, training the canes onto the arbor, and pruning out dead and diseased canes as needed. Knowledge and experience with identifying rose disease and problems is a plus. The work would primarily be March-September and only requires a few hours a month, depending on conditions. We also need renovation work on the brick walkways within Mother’s Garden. This garden area is a focal point in the park and is reserved/rented for weddings and photo shoots. No skills required as it is just a matter of pulling up broken bricks and replacing them with new ones.  It is rewarding work as the results look great when finished. We supply the tools. We will be working on the brick path project plus other projects within the garden throughout the year.  We can work around your schedule.  We’re looking to have this project the main focus of the garden work from March ‘til the end of May 2018. For more information and to volunteer, contact David DeVault at 410-222-6230 or [email protected].
