Garden Tour Guides Needed


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.




Interested in sharing you passion for gardening with others? Smith-Gilbert Gardens conducts classes for anyone interested in learning to lead tours of the Garden or give tours of the historic Hiram Butler House (ca 1881). Classes include plant identification, history of the Hiram Butler house and information about our 30 pieces of Garden Sculpture. The main requirement for being an SGG docent is enthusiasm! At the conclusion of the sessions, you will be fully prepared to take groups on guided tours through the Gardens. Come and join a great group of volunteers and participate in the many activities we have at Smith-Gilbert Gardens. We look forward to having you join us.

Our next docent training course will occur on Mondays in October 2017. For more information, please contact Anna Bell King via email. Tour guides should be availabe at least two days during Spring and early Fall. Tours typically occur on weekdays.
