Volunteers

We encourage individuals and businesses to join WCGT and to get involved by participating on a committee or project. Members are free to pick and choose which events and committees they wish to participate in, and group initiatives are driven by individual members stepping into leadership roles. Perhaps one of these committees appeals to your interests and talents?

We suggest that each member sign up for several weeks of volunteering to help in the summer with maintenance of plantings done around the Concord area.

Gardening Opportunities: Committee Descriptions
Hanging Basket Committee (3 people)

This committee decides which flowers will go in the lovely hanging baskets in the downtown area and they work with the chosen vendor who supplies the baskets. They also contact the Minute Man Arc folks, and coordinate with the town, who handle the watering and fertilizing of these baskets during our summer months.

Gardening/Summer Maintenance Committee (2 people, supported by all members)
This committee creates an on-line sign-up sheet. Members sign up for two slots over the summer to maintain a gardens for a week. The Maintenance Schedule on the Members portion of this website records who is responsible for which week, so that everyone can see the assignments. The committee is also responsible for sending out reminder emails to remind people when their maintenance slot is and to describe what needs to be done.

Fundraising Committee (4-8 people)
This committee solicits funds from past donors and thinks creatively on how to expand solicitations for the coming year. This includes attending local events to promote the group, creating and distributing flyers at local stores, creating Concord Journal articles for specific events, and writing thank you's to the donors and as letters to the Journal.

Publicity Committee (2 or more people)
This committee is in charge of promoting WCGT meetings and events. They also perform membership outreach.  

Website Committee (2 people)
The people on this committee help promote WCGT by writing website and newsletter copy and articles and by maintaining the website. Photographers needed!
