Employment & Volunteer Opportunties

We are a growing and largely volunteer organization that relies on an energetic group of professionals and citizens to run our programs. We share a common interest in gardening and the careful stewardship of our environment. We also appreciate the camaraderie and fun of occasional pot-luck dinners during our meetings and at other times. We enjoy working together.

Volunteer Bookkeeper ~ Approx. 2 hours per month

Manage our financial records. Track all revenues and expenses using appropriate general ledger and budget categories. Pay bills as required; reconcile bank statements and deposits to our accounts, including credit card donations and bi-weekly payroll for one staff member. Generate monthly financial reports. Because we are a small organization with a modest budget (under 70K) this should only require 2-3 hours per month. Facility with Quick Books, MS Excel, and general accounting practices are essential. 

Event Volunteers

We need people to help staff various events. This requires only a few hours of time offered for one event, or you may help at more events if you choose. If you have a passion for the mission of Grow Native Massachusetts, are someone who enjoys working in public with our membership and program participants, we would appreciate your help. Specific roles include: staffing our membership table at our Evenings with Experts; helping with the plant sale, admissions, or silent auction at our Festival Floralia; and outreach at other community events as needed.
