- Assist with grounds cleanup, landscaping and gardening at one of our scheduled volunteer days (once a month from April-November)
- Many indoor and some outdoor spaces will need a fresh coat of paint (or two)
- Lend your handyman skills for basic carpentry and repairs on our main building and cabins
