Learn about plants while helping the oldest horticultural society care for its beautiful gardens! Our garden volunteers work with horticulturists to plant, prune, weed, mulch, rake, and water. Your help is vital to the success of the gardens. No green thumb needed - we provide on-site orientation and training. Get your hands in the dirt, connect with nature and learn with us!

Volunteer opportunities abound at The Gardens at Elm Bank to get you outside and making an impact on your community!
