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

Introduction to Volunteering Sessions are here!

Do you have friends or family members that would enjoy volunteering in the Gardens?  Invite them to join us at Elkhart Health & Aquatics for “Introduction to Volunteering”.  Encourage them to attend and learn more about the fun ways to get involved, enjoy the outdoors, meet new people, and be a part of our volunteer team.  They can register to attend using the following links.

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

  • Lend a helping hand setting up for special events such as weddings and concerts.
