Norfolk Botanical Garden is offering volunteer projects for large groups of volunteers! Bring out your coworkers, classmates, or military command and get your hands dirty with our horticulture department!

Volunteer groups are typically placed with one of our Horticulturalists and assist with work in our natural areas. Tasks such as spreading mulch, pulling weeds, cleaning plant debris such as pinecones or sticks, etc., are the most common opportunities we offer. This is a physically demanding outdoor opportunity that experiences frequent exposure to direct sunlight, high heat, humidity, cold and mild inclement weather such as a light rain. This is outdoor, manual labor that requires frequent standing, walking, bending and stooping. Volunteer groups must be capable of working independently with little supervision for extended periods of time.

School, club or organization staff and/or parent chaperones must accompany and supervise the students/children at all times. Projects are selected at an age appropriate level and may include simple tools, such as trowels, rakes, glue, scissors, etc.

School, club or organization groups must obtain permission from the parents of students/children before they participate in a volunteer event at NBG. NBG does not provide permission slips - the school, club or organization must use their own. It is the responsibility of the sponsoring school, club or organization and site supervisors to maintain emergency contact information for each student/child who participates for use in cases of an emergency.

If you have read the school and group expectations and policies, you may fill out a Volunteer Event Requestand email it to: volunteer@nbgs.org.
