Volunteer

As a volunteer, you can contribute in so many ways to the Garden. Do you enjoy being outdoors? Are you a people person? Whatever your interest or talent, we have a job for you!

The Garden offers volunteers a variety of opportunities to share your talents, skills, and interests with people of all ages. Whether your interest is assisting our horticulture staff, greeting visitors and working in the gift shop, or assisting with special events, there is a place for you at the Garden.

Over 3,000 volunteers contribute their time and talents to the garden each year. This level of volunteerism is vital to the continuing growth of the Garden. Consider being a part of "what’s growing on" by joining the volunteer program at the Garden.


Current Volunteer Needs:


  • Garden Sign Mapping

    Volunteers are needed to work in pairs to help map and audit garden signage. Flexible scheduling and a great way for a group to support the Garden.
  • Advancement Volunteers

    The Advancement Department needs volunteers to assist with data entry, administrative tasks and mailings.
