Volunteer Signup

We love our public volunteers and need your help.  Please sign up for the upcoming annual garden tour and attend a recommended orientation and garden training session approximately two weeks prior to the scheduled tour date.  Your volunteer participation and expertise makes our tours a success with both the garden owners and the touring public.  Sign up for your preferred shift.  You will receive a free pass to tour the gardens during you off-shift and an invitation to a post tour “thank you” reception/ party.

Volunteer positions include garden docents/ specialists, garden greeters, tour day ticketing, and garden parking management.
