As Filoli gears up for the opening of its 2013 season on Feb. 5, the staff of the beautiful Woodside gardens is looking for a new crew of volunteers.
In addition to its beautiful gardens and sprawling country mansion visitors can browse anytime, Filoli is also home to special events like its annual Mother's Day Flower Show, the Jazz at Filoli concert series, the ever-popular Afternoon Tea at Filoli event, and much more.
"Volunteering at Filoli provides the opportunity to experience up-close one of the most beautiful estates in the Bay Area. You’ll also meet dedicated people while working in an environment where your contributions are valued," say Filoli reps on the website.
"Whether your interests lie in working with the public as a House and Garden docent, assisting the horticultural staff with maintaining the garden, or providing general office support to the administrative staff, Filoli's diverse volunteer organization has an area suited just for you," the reps add.
If you think you might like to learn more about volunteering, or sign up, the Filoli staff invites you to attend its free Volunteer Recruitment event next Saturday, Jan. 19 at 9:30 a.m.
"Please join us for Filoli New Volunteer Recruitment at the Filoli Visitor and Education Center. Come and meet new friends, and learn about all of the many ways to support this national treasure," the announcement reads.
Check-in is at 9:30 a.m., when refreshments will be served, and the program begins at 10 a.m.
Filoli is located at 86 Cañada Road in Woodside.
