Year Round

Mornings at the William Wolkoff Garden

Each Saturday during the dahlia season our volunteers meet at 9:00 a.m. at the William Wolkoff Dahlia Garden in Bayard Cutting Arboretum.

Under the leadership of the Garden Director Joe Lysik, our volunteers support the garden by preparing the tubers for planting, maintaining the garden during the blooming times, through the digging up the tubers at the end of season, this is a hands-on learning experience, all are welcome.

Work in the garden is followed by coffee & cake at 11:00 a.m.
