the groupVOLUNTEER ALERT-we are currently recruiting for the Cumberland Home and Garden Tour Saturday June 27th 8 am till 6 pm (shifts 8-1 and 1-6) Email to sign up!

Its a dream gig really, you get to hang out in beautiful homes and gardens, relax in the shade, sipping lemon-aid, chatting with people, showing them where to enter and exit and generally lending your care and attention to the homes and gardens on the tour. You can volunteer in teams, hang out with a friend all day! You can dress up, throw on some wings or just be causal!
As a BONUS there is a volunteer preview tour happening on Thursday June 25th in the evening of most of the participating properties. Most likely rounded off by a beers at the CBC 🙂

Special event volunteer support is a fantastic way to contribute to the Cumberland Forest initiative! We are seeking interested volunteers who enjoy talking about the forest and our community effort to protect it. We set up at various community events and spread the good word, sell t-shirts, give away cookies, answer questions and sign up new donors. Volunteers pick up tents, chairs and materials and help with set up and tear down as well. If you like enjoy speaking with the public and would be interested in representing our organization to the wider community email us at
