A volunteer’s interests, skills, abilities, and availability guide initial placement for orientation and training in a specific service area. Volunteers typically work one half-day per week or two weekend days per month. Contact the Volunteer Services department to discuss other service arrangements.

Whatever your interest or talent, we will explore opportunities for you in the Garden's volunteer program. Consider joining our volunteer family! We hope we will hear from you soon.
