Every second Saturday of the month, join us for volunteer work days from 9am-noon. Depending on the season, activities in the past have included planting, raking, mulching, and clearing nature trails. Yew Dell volunteer days are a great way to learn about horticulture and how to improve your garden at home. And what better place to volunteer than the beautiful, tranquil setting of Yew Dell Gardens.

Volunteers are asked to bring a mask, water bottle, gloves and insect repellent. Mask must be worn when working within 6 feet of other staff/volunteers/visitors to ensure adherence to CDC recommendations for COVID-19. All volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes for safety. Tools will be provided.

Plan to arrive no later than 9am. Our Garden and Arboretum Manager and/or Horticulture Apprentices will meet you at our Visitor Center, get you checked in, and guide you to the project you'll be working on. Have questions? Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 502-241-4788, ext. 1002 or laurar@yewdellgardens.org.
