Harvest Volunteer & Staff Training Session

Harvest Volunteer & Staff Training Session

Fall is nearly here and we need YOU! Join us for the inaugural Harvest at Newfields this October. Celebrate fifty acres of fall featuring endless pumpkins, an engaging hay maze, and vibrant fall foliage set within The Garden. Newfields is the perfect backdrop to celebrate timeless autumn traditions, just as the Lilly family did decades ago. The celebration will feature tastings from local and regional chefs and vendors, hands-on demonstrations and workshops, and a chance to interact with farmers, brewers, and distillers. Families can enjoy spectacular seasonal horticulture displays, pumpkin painting, art making activities, a designated play area, and a family-friendly film on the Lilly Allee. As always, Newfields will complement the season with thought-provoking works of art in the IMA Galleries. The art highlight of Harvest 2019 will be Yayoi Kusama’s spectacular Infinity Mirror Room, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins (2016), sure to provide an enviable Instagram moment. 

On September 26 and 28 we will be hosting a training session for current volunteers as well as those individuals that would like to hear more about what volunteerism at Newfields this season is going to look like. We will need more hands on deck than we ever have before. Why not take the plunge and join our team of volunteers to present this season to Indianapolis and beyond?! Sign up today to join this incredible team and secure your space in what will be a tremendous event to kick off fall at Newfields.
