Get Involved

The majority of support for the Brunner Farmhouse and Gardens comes from volunteers and private donors.  We are always looking for help to keep this property beautiful and accessible as a civic and cultural center for all to enjoy.

We are looking for volunteers to:

  • Adopt a Garden - Adopting a garden doesn't take much!  Just stop by the garden on a regular basis to ensure that those beautiful flowers are on display, not those pesky weeds!
    • A minimum 1-year commitment
    • Gardeners are responsible for general upkeep of the garden: pulling weeds, adding weed fabric, replacing dead plants (with reimbursement from Brunner Farmhouse), maintain mulch layer, notifying appropriate person of damage to sprinkler lines, etc.
    • Businesses that wish to sponsor a garden will have their company name on display in front of their garden
  • Don't have time to dedicate to a specific garden?  That's OK!  There is still plenty to do around the grounds and house and we're always in need of help!
    • Set up and tear down of holiday decorations
    • General spring and fall clean up of grounds and house
    • Donations to house of cleaning supplies, garden supplies, etc.
  • Getting dirty not your thing?  Consider a monetary donation to the Brunner Farmhouse.
    • Funds are used for capital improvements to the grounds and house
  • Purchase Brunner Farmhouse and Gardens Postcards to send to family and friends
    • A $5 donation is suggested to get a 5-pack of postcards with pictures of the Farmhouse (Sample Postcard)
  • Become a member of the Citizen's Advisory Committee
    • Volunteer members serve a two-year term
    • Must apply and interview with City Council when position(s) becomes available
