Mount Hope Farm needs volunteers this Saturday May 14

Mount Hope Farm can use your help this Saturday May 14

The Pepsi Cola Company, Mount Hope Farm, Bristol Parks and Recreation, and the URI Master Gardeners are hosting a
Clean Up Day at Mount Hope Farm
on Saturday, May 14, beginning at 8:30 AM.

Volunteers can lend a hand with a variety of projects from painting to landscaping. The URI Master Gardeners will oversee the restoration of the Governor Bradford House Gardens using a vintage Haffenreffer-era landscape plan. This is a great opportunity to learn about historic landscape design and basic gardening skills from master gardeners, while helping to preserve Mount Hope Farm. Other projects will include painting, erecting a new pasture fence, invasive brush removal and more.

Please join us for this fun-filled volunteering opportunity sponsored by Pepsi, who has graciously provided funding for the clean up, corporate volunteers and refreshments.

To volunteer, please email your name to or call 401-254-1745.
Volunteer registration is in the Barn on Saturday morning.
