Share your time, talent and enthusiasm to make Mercer a premier botanical facility. Volunteers have opportunities to grow plants from seeds and cuttings in our potting shed or prune, groom and plant in the gardens. There are also several plant committees that meet weekly to work on specific types of plants sold at March Mart. Shade meets on Monday, Annuals and Perennials on Tuesday, Natives on Wednesday and Trees and Shrubs on Thursdays. We also have possible opportunities working with a ginger and tropical grower. You must be 16+ to volunteer independently or with a group.
Note: Due to Hurricane Harvey, certain volunteer opportunities are on temporary hold. Please call Mercer Botanic Gardens at 713-274-4160 for more information.
