  • 95 people are interested

The Charleston Parks Conservancy is a nonprofit organization with the mission to inspire the people of Charleston to connect with their parks and together create stunning public spaces and a strong community. Join us as part of our Garden in the Parks program - our ornamental gardening volunteer opportunity that takes place across multiple parks in the City of Charleston. You'll learn valuable garden knowledge from our experienced horticulturists, meet your neighbors, get outside and give back to your community! Projects range from pruning, cutback, weeding and planting, and vary depending on the gardens needs and time of year.

Garden in the Parks volunteer opportunities are offered several times a week and no experience is required.

Opportunities for groups available email our Volunteer Manager, Rachel Barry at rbarry@charlestonparksconservancy.org. Please note that there are limited opportunities right now due to COVID-19.

Mission Statement

To inspire the people of Charleston to connect with their parks and together create stunning public spaces and a strong community.

Description

Founded in 2007, the Charleston Parks Conservancy unites local resources, leverages support and organizes volunteers to be stewards of Charleston's urban parks.

Efforts to create, expand, sustain, and reinvigorate Charleston's urban parks require a collaborative approach. To accomplish our goal of improving and preserving public parks, we foster partnerships throughout the Charleston area. With these resources, expert staff and a passionate corps of volunteers and supporters, the Parks Angels, work side-by-side to rejuvenate parks and create opportunities for community engagement through park programs.

By rallying support and catalyzing action, the Charleston Parks Conservancy cultivates stunning city parks. High quality parks ensure that Charleston will be a wondrous, welcoming and active place now, and for future generations.

We believe that high quality parks contribute to a higher quality of life, and great parks build strong communities.
