We invite you to join us to restore, develop and sustain Mead Botanical Garden. Friends of Mead Garden volunteer in dozens of ways from research, to clerical, communications, to teaching, leading tours, fund raising events like the Duck Derby (great fun), weeding, and planting (planting ideas, as well as trees). Mead Botanical Garden needs leaders and followers and everyone in between.  Complete the form below if you would like to join the fun!
