Ozark Folk Center State Park. Volunteers assist Park Herbalist Tina Marie Wilcox in maintaining and planting the Park’s Heritage Gardens. The gardens include native woodland plants, as well as vegetables, fruit, herbs, and flowers cultivated for hundreds of years in the Ozarks. While working in gardens and greenhouse, volunteers learn about traditional culinary and medicinal uses of many plants and techniques for cultivating and propagating them. There are usually three work mornings each month throughout the year: first and third Wednesdays and first Fridays. Contact: Nell Doyle.
