The Arlington House Foundation (AHF) and the National Park Service (NPS) collaborate to provide opportunities for volunteers to support educational and charitable activities. 

Educational Activities

Volunteers serve as docents, working with NPS Rangers to describe the history of Arlington and the people who occupied it. For more information, contact an NPS Ranger or see here.

Charitable Activities

Volunteers work in Arlington's Kitchen Garden applying soil amendments, planting, labeling plants, installing erosion controls (wattles), watering, weeding, pruning and disposing of plant debris. Typically, volunteers working during the growing season on Wednesday and/or Saturday morning (weather permitting). Kitchen Garden plantings include vegetables (e.g. buckwheat, beets, collards, corn, Irish potatoes, strawberries, etc.) and fragrant herbs (e.g. lavender, etc.). The Kitchen Garden's yield is donated to area non-profits to benefit citizens in need. Community, corporate and school volunteers are encouraged to participate. For more information, contact the Activity Coordinator. To volunteer, see here.
