It Pays to Volunteer!

17, May, 2013 Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy

There are lots of ways in which volunteering for the Greenway Conservancy can benefit you!  Here are just a few reasons to come out and join our staff in caring for the parks:

rosepruning small

Kelly, our Seasonal Horticulturist, trained our volunteers how to prune roses two weeks ago in the Fort Point Channel Parks.  If you have questions, our knowledgeable staff will happily answer any that you might have about the Greenway or your own garden as they work alongside you!

mulching small

Don’t have a yard of your own but enjoy doing work outdoors?  This volunteer, from Biogen Idec, expressed how good it felt to stand in the back of a pickup truck and haul mulch all morning.   We were so happy to have your help!


As you can see, our Greenway volunteers have a lot of fun while they do great work for their community. A great big thanks to Linda and Margaret for bringing laughter and a ‘can-do’ attitude to so many of our volunteer days!

And, if you’re lucky, you might even find a dollar while you’re working in the Greenway gardens.  See, it really does pay to volunteer!  And, even if you don’t find any real money, know that your hard work and positive attitude really help the parks shine for the many park-goers.

Our volunteers meet every other Wednesday at 9AM in the Greenway parks.  Our corporate/school/nonprofit groups meet the opposite Wednesdays.  If you are interested in volunteering on the Greenway, either as an individual or as a group, email [email protected] and we’ll share more information and a meeting location with you!   Hope to see you in the parks!
