Volunteer Opportunities

Clare Boothe Luce Library

Saturdays, preferably, but always welcome
Bibliophiles and those looking for quiet, indoor work may enjoy working with our friendly librarians, helping to preserve Mepkin’s old book collection, processing new books, or helping with one of the many projects going on at the CBL Library.
To volunteer at the Library, please contact Mepkin’s Librarian, Vivian Kaz.

Mepkin Abbey Public Garden Maintenance

Choose Tuesday or Thursday (or both!)  |  9AM until 11AM
Work on all phases of garden maintenance. Working as a volunteer at Mepkin provides you with an opportunity to learn about the many aspects of horticulture.
To volunteer for the gardens, please contact Ursula Well, Garden Volunteer Coordinator.

 

Native Plants Program Opportunity

Mondays, Wednesdays, or 1st Saturday of each month  |  9AM until 11:30AM
Work primarily at propagating and planting native plants in Mepkin Abbey’s “Native Plant Restoration Project.” This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the native plants growing in our part of the country. Those unable to do the heavier work of planting may help in the greenhouses.
If you are interested in getting involved with this special gardening project, please contact Father Guerric.
