Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear

Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear (a non-profit partner of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore) is looking for several volunteers with a special passion for vegetable gardening and an interest in heirloom plants.  They would be responsible for planning, planting, maintaining, and harvesting the Kitchen Garden at the Olsen Farm in the Port Oneida Rural Historic District.  Organic gardening methods and heirloom varieties must be used.  These volunteers would be part of a larger team of volunteers that maintains perennial and berry gardens at the Olsen Farm. 

Work would begin in May.  Dates are flexible.  If interested, please contact PHSB Garden Committee Co-Chair Jean Jenkins at
