Quarryhill volunteer educator training


Quarryhill Botanical Garden

Wednesday February 12th 2014 - 9:00am to


In the last 27 years, Quarryhill has grown to include 20,000 wild-origin plants and flowers, located in the 25-acre garden and made available for public viewing 7 days a week (excluding major holidays). Help is needed to educate people of all ages on the importance of the many fascinating plants and flowers found at Quarryhill.

Quarryhill would like to match your interests with its needs, so the garden has two different docent options: one for those who enjoy teaching elementary grade students, and the other for those who prefer working with adults.

If you want to volunteer but don’t feel you know enough to teach others, don’t worry, Quarryhill’s training series will teach you everything you need to know. The training series runs Wednesday, Feb. 12, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and continues each Wednesday through March 19.

The material presented is designed to educate you on the programs and their content, and much of the time will be spent walking the garden. Additionally, they will discuss the history of the garden, including its inception and development, the mission, international relationships, and connection with Asian flora – cultural, medicinal, and horticultural.

To sign up for the Educator Training Series or if you have any questions about this program, please call Education Coordinator/Nursery Manager, Corey Barnes at 996-6027 or email cbarnes@quarryhillbg.org. Quarryhill Botanical Garden is located at 12841 Sonoma Highway in Glen Ellen.
