Volunteer and get your hands dirty. The City of Roseville is looking for some green thumbs. Even if your thumb isn’t so green, you can help. Help us plant, weed, mulch, water and more at the arboretum and orchard.
Whether you can donate an hour or are looking for an ongoing volunteer opportunity, we’ll find something for you to do. Volunteers can work alongside staff on Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. to noon, or volunteers can work independently evening or weekends.
The Muriel Sahlin Arboretum, located at 2525 Dale St., offers a serene setting to enjoy beautiful gardens and grounds, walkways, water fountain, and architectural features. Visitors can also explore ideas for their own landscapes. Many of the trees and shrubs are native Minnesota species.
The orchard includes more than 100 fruit-bearing trees and shrubs. It provides an opportunity for community members to learn how to grow, harvest and preserve fresh produce. The fruits and vegetables that are harvested are made available to the community or donated to local food shelves.
If you are interested in learning more or to volunteer, contact Rachel Boggs at 651-792-7028 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for helping make Roseville a beautiful place to live, work and play.
