Shofuso needs your help reclaiming it’s surrounding arboretum areas. We are aiming to beautify the approach and greater grounds of the house, and our gardener could use a few extra hands to make it happen for Philadelphia’s Love Your Park Week!
The volunteer day will consist mostly of general brush and debris clean up, leaf raking, as well as invasive plant and weed removal. No prior gardening experience necessary. Come prepared to work amongst dirt and brambles, so closed-toed shoes and long pants/shirts are recommended. If you happen to have personal gloves and a small trowel of your own, do not hesitate to bring them along. There will also be opportunities for lighter and more specified weeding inside the grounds of the garden itself for any experienced gardeners out there.
Coffee and Donuts will be available as refreshments during the workday.
*Same-day free tours of the house will be available to all volunteers, & free passes will also be provided so you may return with friends and family on a day of your choice*
Thanks so much, and we here at Shofuso Japanese Cultural Center look forward to seeing you there!
