Grounds and landscaping enthusiast: Grounds work is varied in these 26 acres of trees, shrubs, flowers, an orchard, patios, driveways and desert pathways. From raking, trimming and weeding, to picking pecans and citrus and pruning trees, there is always something to be done. Gardening tools are provided. Volunteer for a one-time project or a few hours per week/month. This is a peaceful, quiet environment that is tobacco-free and pet-free.
