One of the great strengths of the Garden is our vital corps of volunteers who provide assistance in virtually every area of the Garden. From horticulture to special events to educational tours, our volunteers are crucial to our operations ensuring every guest has a wonderful experience.

Volunteering at the Garden provides an opportunity to meet people with similar interests and give the community the gift of your time. The Garden is always looking for new volunteers to join the team. The Garden’s Volunteer Coordinator can also help you plan a corporate volunteering event for your organization or company.
