As our season ramps up, we are getting busier and busier in our Visitor’s Cottage. With expanded Spring/Summer hours in place and all the events and exhibits we have coming up, we expect lots of visitors in the coming weeks! Our Visitor’s Cottage staff always appreciates the help our volunteer greeters provide.

Whether you are new to volunteering at Wellfield or a seasoned veteran who has never spent time in our Visitor’s Cottage, we always welcome your help! If you like talking to people and sharing your knowledge and love of the Gardens and our area, we’d love to see your smiling face helping out as a greeter in our Visitor’s Cottage!

We need your help on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays! Duties include welcoming guests, checking in members, answering questions for our guests and assisting our staff as needed. Some standing and walking is required, and our shifts run two hours in duration. To sign up, please stop by or call our Visitor’s Cottage at 574-266-2006 or email our Volunteer & Guest Services Manager, Jodie Papandrea at

*Thank you to volunteer Phyllis Osborne for creating beautiful floral displays in our Visitor’s Cottage every Monday! This week’s is pictured here and features Lilacs and Peonies. Phyllis’ handiwork is just another example of how volunteers at Wellfield put smiles on so many faces!
