University of Delaware Botanic Gardens: Day 1 August 8, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — To Prune Or Not To Prune @ 11:19 am

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.
