At Plimoth Plantation, we take pride in being pioneers of outdoor living history, but we know that keeping the story fresh and vital requires an engaged community that cares as much about the story as we do. Being part of the Plimoth Plantation community is a very special affiliation. Whether you work for the museum, volunteer or are a member, you are a constituent of a great institution dedicated to preserving and telling the authentic story of the Wampanoag of Patuxet and the Pilgrims of Plymouth. Another way you can become involved is to join one of the Plimoth Plantation clubs. This is a great way to peek behind the curtain, meet new people, learn a new/old skill, and help this world-class destination breathe new life into history every day.
The Plimoth Knitters' Club: For Those Needling Some Fun!
Are you an experienced knitter looking for a new challenge and a fun night out? Come join The Plimoth Knitters’ Club. This weekly knitting club, hosted by Plimoth Plantation, meets on Wednesday evenings in the Leyden Room, providing a cozy and interesting club setting, while offering opportunities for new challenges and the fun camaraderie only fellow knitters can provide. Plimoth Plantation’s Historical Clothing and Textiles department relies almost solely on volunteer knitters for stockings, hats, mittens and garters, used in the Museum’s authentically reproduced living history sites. Knitting club members will be supplied with yarn and patterns to complete a variety of historic projects. In return, each Plimoth Knitters’ Club member is responsible for annual dues of $25.00 and will commit to knitting at least three items per year, which will be used on site, as part of Plimoth Plantation’s historic programs. Be sure to join the club today by contacting ColonialWardrobe@plimoth.org.
Museum Gardening Club: Learn as you Grow
Have a passion for growing things? Or just want to get your hands dirty? Join Plimoth Plantation staff as they re-plant the kitchen gardens in our 17th-Century English Village. This club meets Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 9 am until 11 am at the Horticulture Center, beginning with spring planting and throughout the growing season. Experience the pride that comes from nurturing heirloom seeds into herbs, flowers and vegetables that are a feature of Plimoth Plantation’s living history sites. You can have lots of fun and take pride in knowing that visitors from around the world will enjoy the results of your efforts. And although there's a lot of weeding to do, you'll also learn what plants the Pilgrims grew in their kitchen gardens. Discover information about herbs, greens and root vegetables. Meet people with similar interests and have fun outwitting the weeds! For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
