The Botanic Garden of Smith College serves as a living museum of plants native to New England and ecosystems around the world, displaying plants in the Lyman Conservatory, the 125 acre college campus, and specialty gardens. Volunteers lead tours and staff our reception desk and exhibition gallery. Other activities include developing thematic tours, providing hospitality for the annual spring Bulb Show and other events, and assisting with exhibitions. Please note: Volunteers do not do any hands-on horticultural work.
