• Volunteer

Connecting people with plants and enjoying the outdoors.

Volunteers are the heartbeat of the garden. Donating your time is a great way to connect with others, learn about plants and meet other horticultural enthusiasts. We offer a wide range of opportunities for both working hands-on in the garden, and helping with events, fundraising and other ‘behind-the-scenes’ positions. Learn new skills working on diverse projects, and help improve current ones. Volunteer at Sears Sunken Garden to see where people and plants thrive together.
