Glen Eyrie Castle & Conference Center (MORNING)

OCT
1
Date & Time:

Saturday, October 1, 2022
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Volunteers:

39 have signed up & 1 openings remain.

Description:

Glen Eyrie’s stunning beauty and rich spiritual heritage create a place where, for a few sacred moments, guests can set aside their troubles and catch their breath. The Glen Eyrie staff ministers by thoughtfully creating experiences which set the stage for all to discover, explore, and be transformed.

What to expect: We are very thankful to have such a beautiful property to steward, but it takes many hands to keep the grounds and gardens in order. Volunteers will be helping us do that. There will be two options: pulling weeds in the dry creek bed that runs through the property or getting one of the gardens ready for the dormant season. 

Age Requirement: 11 years +, adult supervision required for minors.

What to wear: Jackets, layered clothing, long pants, and tennis or hiking shoes. 

What to bring:  Water, snacks, work gloves, and trash bags will be provided. There will also be some gardening tools available, but it would be helpful for volunteers to bring weed-pulling tools with them if possible.

Parking/Meeting Instructions:  When volunteers arrive at the gatehouse they should tell the attendant that they are CityServe volunteers. They will be directed to make a u-turn and park in the Volunteer Center parking lot that is just Southeast of the gate. They will meet Wendy Buckler in the Volunteer Center. (Wendy will have drinks and snacks for them there, as well as an indoor place to rest if needed and bathrooms.) Wendy will begin the morning with a brief thank you, info on future volunteer opportunities, and safety training. Volunteers will be divided into teams to serve around the property.

Day of Contact: Wendy Buckler, 719-272-7470
