The Ruth Bancroft Garden is looking for friendly, outgoing volunteers to help as a Garden Greeter at the admission kiosk. After visitors check in at the kiosk, Garden Greeters help orient them into the garden with a self-guided tour book. Training would be provided to handle admission and nursery plant sales with the point of sales system.

Volunteers should have an interest in general gardening, working in an outdoor setting and enjoy being part of a team.

Volunteering at the Ruth Bancroft Garden is a great opportunity to contribute to the success of this exceptionally designed collection of water-conserving plants for the education and enjoyment of the public. As a volunteer at the garden, you will have the opportunity to learn more about gardening with drought-tolerant plants, be a member of an interesting community of volunteers, spend time in a relaxing environment, and be a part of this inspiring garden and the organization behind it.

We are specifically looking for someone who can volunteer on: Wednesday afternoons (12:45-4pm) or Thursday mornings (9:45-1pm).
