Volunteering is an inspiring way to accomplish neighborhood goals together and a wonderful opportunity to get to know your neighbors.
Barnard Place Park welcomes Boston residents to join-in by becoming active volunteers. Through your volunteer support, we can ensure Barnard Place Park will provide a beautiful, open space for the public to enjoy for many years to come.
Darrah Cole, Senior Horticulturist and Designer at the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, and Pattie McCormick, Associate Director of Development of the Edgerly Family South Boston Boys & Girls Club, are collaborating to create a gardening program for the Boys & Girls Club's pre-teen members as a way to cultivate gardening skills while giving back to the local community as hands-on volunteers— digging in to install Barnard Place Park’s first round of plantings. We are so excited about this program. It is a true, neighborhood partnership through which the Boys & Girls Club will use Barnard Place Park as an ongoing laboratory, a place to continue teaching their members about growing and caring for vegetables, herbs, pollinators, and trees.
Additional Barnard Place Park Volunteer Opportunities include:
*BPP's Annual Bocce Tournament Fundraising Event— to help support park maintenance funding. Aiming to launch our first tournament in 2021!
*Ongoing Landscape Care—
*Simple Tidying Up— Help with weekly chores, such as furniture cleaning, sweeping pavers, removal of leaves, or seasonal preparations and structural repairs.
If there are volunteer activities in which you would like to participate, we would love to hear from you.
Let’s have some fun!
