Volunteers are a big part of what makes this garden so special! Please consider joining our team of excellent volunteers. We have a variety of opportunities throughout the year for you to help sustain and improve the garden, both onsite and within the broader community. Whether your preference is to work with people, plants, or both, we have a job for you!
