  • In consultation with staff members, work as a team to raise funds and in-kind donations to complete the irrigation system, and obtain the landscaping materials and plants needed to complete the overall landscaping plans
  • Assist with installation of new landscaping plants and materials.  This may also include working with Boy Scouts as they complete their Eagle Projects
