Volunteer Opportunities at the Historical Society of Princeton
Unity Garden Volunteers
Help maintain our new organic garden at Updike Farmstead, and see immediate and visible results from your efforts!
Volunteer weekly to tend to the garden, including watering and picking fruits, vegetables and herbs. Excess produce will be donated to Farmers Against Hunger; help will then be needed to coordinate delivery. Additional opportunities include participating in special planting/harvesting days, planning/teaching educational programs and growing ingredients for a local restaurant partnership. Horticultural knowledge is helpful, but not required; must be physically fit.
If interested, please contact Eve Mandel, Curator of Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (609) 921-6748, x102.
House Tour Docents - November 2, 2013
HSP's 2013 House Tour is coming up on November 2, 2013! We invite you to become a docent. Docents are truly the heart of the Tour - they welcome visitors, tell the story of the houses, and implement Visitor Guidelines. To volunteer, complete a docent form (click here to download) and send it to us with your $10 contribution by October 4, 2013. Your $10 docent fee includes a House Tour ticket, a savings of $40 in appreciation of your commitment to HSP!
Many Thanks to Our Current Volunteers
HSP is grateful to all of our dedicated volunteers. Our Walking Tour Guides make it possible for us to offer tours of downtown Princeton every Sunday at 2 pm, as well as special tours for groups - many thanks to Dick Eiger, Harold Kuskin, Michael Lundy, Richard Moody, Jack Reilly, Shirley Satterfield, Barry Singer, Dick Snedeker, Kurt Steiner, and Leslie White for generously sharing your knowledge of Princeton's history. Our Unity Garden Volunteers keep the garden green and growing, and help us provide produce for the Cornerstone Community Kitchen's weekly dinners for those in need - thank you to Lisa Moody, Ruthann Perry, Bridget Sweeney, and Emma Wingreen for your hard work cultivating the garden. Our High School Docents - most recently including Quinn Cummings, Winona Guo, Zabeer Rahman, Malavika Rajagopal, Kelby Williamson, and Lena Zlock - introduce visitors to Bainbridge House to our current exhibits, helping inspire enthusiasm for local history. Thank you to all, past and present! Last but not least, thank you to all of our committed House Tour docents, who guide and educate visitors in participating homes each year.
