Orientation for our fall Linnaeus Volunteer training class will be held Saturday, August 25th, 10:00 AM at the Tulsa Garden Center Auditorium, 2435 S. Peoria Avenue, Tulsa, OK.
The public is encouraged to attend and learn more about the garden, its mission and volunteer program. A colorful PowerPoint program will be shown explaining what it’s like to go through Linnaeus training and be a volunteer. There is no cost or obligation to attend orientation.
Volunteers are the key to everything at Linnaeus. Several hundred men and women have graduated from the twelve-week Linnaeus Garden Training program that equips volunteers to share their love and knowledge of gardening with the public.
Linnaeus training emphasizes practical “how to” gardening techniques. Garden design, perennials, annuals, woody plants, pruning, water gardening, fruits, veggies, and lawn care are a sampling of the topics we cover in fall training. Much of the training is conducted in small group settings in the teaching garden. Linnaeus volunteers also enjoy lots of social activities, including group travel to great gardens in and out of state.
