  • 13 people are interested

Gardening volunteers at Holden Arboretum may be among the healthiest people. That’s because gardening is physically and psychologically therapeutic. Volunteering is emotionally rewarding.

Volunteer gardeners help horticulturists maintain and care for gardens that educate and inspire thousands of visitors from near and far.

Come learn a few things to take back to your home garden. A knowledge of and interest in perennials and gardening experience is helpful, but not required. Greatest need is on Thursday mornings, 9-11am in our Paine Rhododendron Discovery Garden.
