Center for Education, Imagination,Natural world

Description: Garden Interns and Volunteers Located within the beauty of a 165 acre earth sanctuary, the Center for Education, Imagination and the Natural World is dedicated to bringing to life a new vision of the relationship between the inner life of the child and the beauty, wonder and intimacy of the universe. Since 2001, the Center has welcomed college interns and volunteers to work in our organic garden of medicinal and culinary herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables. If you are interested in making a commitment of service during the summer, Fall or Spring semester, please contact our garden volunteer coordinator, Sandy Bisdee, at (919) 724-7406 or We also welcome one-time volunteers for garden workdays on selected days. The Center is about a 15 minute drive from Elon University.
