Volunteering is great way to make a difference in your community, meet new people and have fun!

You can make a difference in your community!  Volunteering at Wellfield Botanic Gardens is a great way to get outside, have fun, and meet new people.  We have volunteer opportunities for everyone.  Below are just a few ways you can get involved.

  • Be a greeter in our Visitors Cottage.  Welcome guests with a smile and help make their visit to Wellfield memorable and an enjoyable experience.
  • Horticulture volunteers help with planting, pruning, weeding, and general garden maintenance.  Digging in the soil is good for the soul.
  • Be an educational volunteer for school field trips or adult programs – – for more information about our Environmental Education Training Program click here
  • Become a Garden Ambassador and represent Wellfield Botanic Gardens at community events.
  • Lend a helping hand setting up for special events such as weddings and concerts.
  • Assisting in our Administration Office with clerical duties.
  • We always welcome groups who would like to volunteer together.
