ABOUT TALIESIN PRESERVATION

As stewards of the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, our dual mission is to preserve the cultural, built, and natural environments that comprise the Taliesin property and to conduct educational and cultural programs that provide a greater understanding of his architecture and ideas. We are different from other historic sites because we are not satisfied with just being a museum. We want the estate to stay filled with life.

There is an energy here that captures and engages people. And the staff, without exception, are creative people who care passionately about their work and are full of ideas. We are a small organization and, as such, we offer a lot of flexibility and opportunity for people to develop within their areas of interest--and we are invested in their success!

VOLUNTEERING AS AN ESTATE GARDENER

As an Estate Gardener, you get to work with a team of preservation specialists to manage and maintain the cultural landscape areas of the Taliesin Estate. The property is populated with diverse plantings including trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, annuals, grasses and a kitchen garden to provide edible produce for our exciting Food Artisan Immersion Program. You will be the eyes and ears on the property and a key part of keeping this historic landscape thriving.

It is an opportunity to work in a community that embraces the principles of Frank Lloyd Wright's vision through the integration of farming, gardening, and cooking as a celebration of a beautiful way of living.
