Orchid volunteer needed

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On August 27th

We need someone who can help us with a small, specialty collection of potted orchids that were donated to us.  You don’t need to be an expert orchid grower: just be willing to do some research on the eight species and help us care for them.  Ideally, the volunteer will be able to commit to coming to the Estates once a week (Tuesday – Friday) for at least two months to work with Garden staff and the orchids.  If you are interested, please call Britta at 239-334-7419 and leave a message.
