Today was my first day at UDBG, and I will be working with Melinda Zoehrer, who is the Assistant Director.
Melinda gave me a quick over view of the garden, and told me about several ways that non-profit gardening institutions raise money if they don’t have endowments:
- special events
- sales or rare plant auctions
- direct mails (doesn’t necessarily have a high turnover rate, but it’s cheap)
Melinda also told me about the process of updating the member list goes when an individual pays dues, and I got to meet the Curatorial Intern, Matt.
