Manitoga relies on the dedication of volunteers who help interpret and maintain the House, Studio and Woodland garden as an extraordinary resource and an inspiring place to visit.

Landscape volunteers receive hands-on training and mini-workshops in gardening with native plants, invasive species identification and removal, tree care and other woodland landscape issues.

Volunteer Landscape Days
Every year, we dedicate special landscape days for volunteers to come together to help maintain Manitoga as a resource and inspiration for professionals and the public. Members of Manitoga’s Woodland Landscape Council and staff provide special training for teams working on major projects to ready the site for the season and to maintain Wright’s unique design vision.

Lunch is provided. 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

2014 Volunteer Landscape Days are scheduled for Saturday, March 29, Saturday, April 26, Saturday, September 20 and Saturday, November 8.
