The Center for Historic Plants (CHP), established by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in 1987, is looking for volunteers to assist with general horticultural duties and maintenance, as well as seed packaging, potting, and plant propagation. Volunteers may also assist with educational programs and special events.

CHP is charged with the mission of collecting, preserving, and distributing historic plant varieties. The Center is located on Tufton Farm, one of Jefferson’s quarter farms, down the road from Monticello.
