Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Leach Garden Friends maintains and enhances Leach Botanical Garden's living collections of plants for the purposes of education, research and conservation and preserves the legacy of the Garden’s founders, John and Lilla Leach. Portland’s botanical and cultural garden, Leach Garden is a treasure connecting people, place, and plants through discovery and delight. The garden features northwest native plants and other unique collections, and is a horticultural resource for both casual and serious gardeners, a hands-on laboratory for environmental education, an historic site celebrating John & Lilla Leach and their contributions to Pacific Northwest botany and to the southeast Portland community, a place of beauty, respite, and reflection, and a special place for families to gather and create memories.
Over 100 volunteers help keep Leach Garden humming. They welcome visitors to the Manor House, provide tours of the Garden and share stories and information. They propagate plants, groom trails and prune branches. They stage events and fundraisers such as the English Tea and Plant Sale. And they work on special projects ranging from marketing and technology upgrades to carpentry and graphics. Without volunteers, the Garden would be a very different place. We encourage you to visit the garden and become a volunteer!
