Mercer Botanic Gardens has five different plant committees whose main focus is to grow plants for events such as March Mart. An assortment of plants is also for sale daily at the Mercer Plant and Gift Shoppe. Plant Committees include Shade Plants on Mondays, Annuals and Perennials on Tuesdays, Native Plants on Wednesdays and Trees/Shrubs on Thursday. Each group spends approximately 3 - 4 hours caring for plants on their designated day. Volunteers interested in assisting with tropicals and gingers can contact Mercer for more information at 713-274-4160, ext.4162.
Volunteers are also welcome for general greenhouse assistance, Monday - Thursday from 9 a.m. - noon and 1 - 3:30 p.m.
Note: Due to Hurricane Harvey, certain volunteer opportunities are on temporary hold. Please call for more information.
