Get involved at the Garden…..Volunteer!

Volunteers play a critical role in helping the Garden grow—and not all work with plants! A dedicated group of volunteers work closely with our small staff to present a wide range of activities to the community. Whether you can help a few times a year for a special event or are able to dedicate a few hours a week, we invite you to join our volunteer community.

No experience is needed—just a love of the Garden and desire to support its mission. Whether you are a “social butterfly,” have a “green thumb,” or want to share your expertise and passion, we have a job for you. Inside or outside, summer or winter, there is always a place for you at the Garden!

Volunteer opportunities vary by the season as well as by our current needs. Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Hands-on gardening and plant propagation
  • Weekend educational family programming and weekday Terrarium programming
  • Culinary and Wellness programming
  • Special events such as Viva Botanica and Brew & Blooms
  • Membership Recruitment and Hospitality
  • Summer camp assistants
  • Fall, Spring and Summer student internships
  • Children’s Vegetable Garden section assistants, and Junior Master Gardener lesson assistants
