Hillwood is recruiting garden docents

 

The following message is from Lisa Horvath at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens at 4155 Linnean Avenue NW Washington, DC 20008. If you have never visited Hillwood, you have missed a wonderful experience.

 

Hillwood is currently recruiting for garden docents and visitor services volunteers. The deadlines to submit completed applications for these volunteer roles are fast approaching. Please read on for more details about these exciting opportunities and submit your application today!

 

Garden Docent Training Program

Garden docents lead regularly-scheduled guided tours of Hillwood’s gardens during the spring and fall seasons. Docents also serve on-station interpreting the gardens and assist with private tours, events, and public programming.

 

Candidates should have an interest in gardens, landscape design, and Hillwood’s founder, Marjorie Merriweather Post, and have the desire to help visitors understand and enjoy Hillwood’s spectacular outdoor spaces.

Completed applications are due by September 7, 2018. Training will begin in January 2019 and run through May 2019.

Visitor Services Volunteers

Visitor services volunteers help provide a gracious visitor experience, greeting and orientating visitors, helping to plan visits, answering visitor questions, and assisting with special events and public programming.

Candidates should have an interest in learning about decorative arts, the museum’s collection, and Hillwood’s founder, Marjorie Merriweather Post.

Completed applications are due by August 17, 2018.

Learn More

To apply, candidates should complete the appropriate application by the respective deadline. Applications may be found on the Jobs and Volunteering page of Hillwood’s website or by clicking the buttons above. Interviews will be conducted in the fall.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you for helping get the word out about these opportunities to volunteer “Where Fabulous Lives”.

Roy Kelley,  I would think you would be the most perfect garden docent.  However, I do wonder where you would find time for Facebook Photography Groups, your garden,  Happy Hours, mystery novels, ActiveRain, enjoying Chef Dolores' menus, friendships, travel, the Kentlands, Gaithersburg,  etc., etc., etc.....oh,............and Snap Dog?!!?  :))  Love the flower arrangements.
