Volunteer Opportunites

We use a mix of both paid staff and volunteers to help oversee public garden hours and give guided tours. Our volunteers/staff participate in our special open-to-the-public events to help greet visitors, pass out information or enrich visitors immersive experience. 

Volunteers can choose to be one-time only or can make regular recurring commitments according to their schedule. Your participation is invaluable to us continuing our programs!

We currently have volunteer positions open for the following: 

GARDEN STEWARDS

This is a 4-hour commitment to be available in the gardens during our public garden hours to hand out visitor information, answer questions and monitor visitor activity. We are currently needing someone on Tuesdays from 2:00-6:00pm, now through the end of October.  

We appreciate as many days as you are willing and available to offer! We highly value our volunteers as their efforts allow us to continue open the gardens to the public at no charge.
