Volunteer Information

Information for Evergreen Cemetery Volunteers

The entrance is on Evergreen Road.  To get there, take the Nine Mile Road east exit off of I-64.  Turn right on to Evergreen road. The turn is right across from the Henrico Government Center.  Follow Evergreen Road until just after it crosses over I-64.  Turn in at the Four Cemeteries sign. Follow signs to the work area and parking area.

I recommend you wear heavy shoes or boots.  There is broken glass, pieces of rusty metal etc. on the site. We usually work 2 to 3 hours but you are free to come when you can and stay as long as you can.  There is no water available so bring your own water / beverage.  Also, there are no restroom facilities so plan for that.

Recommended tools to bring are: heavy duty steel rake/bow rake; limb loppers; clippers; good, heavy gloves to handle glass, briars, etc.  I also bring many tools and pairs of gloves for those who don’t have the equipment or gloves.
