I started my journey with Greenbank when we had our wedding onsite. This beautiful site is a a gem of serene nature and fascinating history, that you'd never know is tucked behind a busy shopping corner. From there we came on as volunteers to help maintain this vibrant and valuable piece of history. There is so much to do onsite, from the heritage livestock, heirloom gardens, learning new/old skills, helping restore the site, and assist with the variety of interesting and fun programs that are offered throughout the year.

What I love about this site is that there is such a sense of community, where everyone is working towards preserving such an integral part of America's past for tomorrow, and everyone is welcome, no matter where they come from, what they look like, or what their personal life is. Greenbank is a place to matter, and to help and that, to me is everything.

Greenbank Mill is a treasure in our community. Living in Delaware my entire life, I am embarrassed to say I never knew Greenbank Mill was a real working mill until just last year. Not that I would've understood what that meant years ago. This year I attended the sheep shearing event in April and have been a member ever since! Meeting people with the same passion for fiber is fantastic! I love the twice monthly spin-ins, the natural dyeing classes, and the sheep shearing days! What a wonderful group of people, and a fantastic organization that is very necessary in our community! We need to get back to basics; back to nature; and Greenbank Mill allows us to do just that!

The wonderful staff continuously involves the community in many wonderful experiences. They are encouraging, helpful and easy to approach. No one will ever regret having an event/function at Greenbank. Great service with a touch of history to boot.

I started volunteering in 2013 helping mainly with maintenance on the property. Such a great bunch of volunteers to work with always something to be done never a boring or dull moment. I enjoy volunteering at a beautiful historical working farm/ museum. Tim Horack
