Our volunteers help us grow!

Wellfield is blessed with such a great volunteer team! Our 132 volunteers gave over 5,200 hours of their time last year – an incredible 43% increase compared to 2016. When we have put a cry out for help, our volunteers are there, stepping up to help us succeed. We simply cannot express our gratitude enough.

Wellfield’s volunteers are an amazing group of people. Coming from all walks of life, we have volunteers who help in the Gardens whether it is cold and rainy or the sun is blazing and the heat index is 110 degrees. They help with our special events and programs, such as our Groovin’ in the Gardens Concert Series, our field trips, or our Winter Wonderland Holiday Lights. No matter the need, no matter the weather, they always have smiles on their faces. When groups arrive at Wellfield looking for a tour, our volunteers are ready and happy to tell the story of the Gardens and answer questions. When we have weddings or special events, they help with setup/take down and with greeting our guests. We truly could not do what we do without their help!

From all of the staff at Wellfield Botanic Gardens, we thank each and every one of our volunteers and look forward to another great year in 2018!
