Session 2: Pulling a Rabbit out of a Hat - Recruiting Labor out of Thin Air Session
Who doesn’t want 3,000 hours of FREE labor? The AmeriCorps’ National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) is a relatively untapped resource in the botanical garden world. These teams are friendly, productive, and motivated groups of 18-24 year olds who are up for anything from large physical projects to daily garden routines. This presentation will directly address how to apply, prepare for, and utilize a NCCC team in a botanical garden setting. It will also discuss some of the potential pitfalls to be aware of when considering welcoming one of these teams.
