Volunteer

Being a volunteer is a big asset to any non-profit organization. We rely heavily on the people who want to be involved in any area of the gardens. Whether you have talents in gardening, organizing, fundraising, teaching, or just lending a hand in any area that needs assistance, you are considered extremely valuable.

It is the best way to have an active involvement in the development and maintenance of our gardens. Not only can you commune with nature on a personal level, you can also meet new people in the process for a little camaraderie that may last a lifetime.

With your involvement, the beautiful gardens will continue growing into a wonderful destination for people within the community and those from the region. Even if you cannot actively get involved on a hands-on approach, spread the word to others you may know and you will have done a huge part as a volunteer. We could not succeed without your involvement on some level, so get your hands dirty and become a part of our transformation today!
