Enfield Shaker Museum Village GardenersBecome a Village Gardener

Become a Village Gardener this summer and learn new skills! This popular program, under the direction of our Garden Coordinator and other experts, covers all phases of herb gardening. Soil preparation, garden planning, composting, mulching, propagation and use of herbs, harvesting, and herb crafts will be covered. Each week we gather in the spirit of community to care for the garden, now in its 29th year. There will be discussion on the growth, maintenance and use of the herbs and plants.

The program includes special workshops available only to the Village Gardeners based on topics of interest, and discounts on other garden workshops. Each gardener will be enriched with herbal and gardening knowledge which they can then incorporate into their own garden.

The program officially runs from May through October. Each Village Gardener is asked to contribute at least two hours per week to the maintenance of the garden. Village Gardeners meet every Tuesday morning at 9:00 am and/or an additional time mornings or evenings based on your own schedules. The Garden Coordinator and other experts will post additional times during the week when they will be working in the garden and available to help and answer questions.

Village Gardeners are encouraged to volunteer at the annual Harvest Festival which takes place the last Saturday in September.
