Volunteer at Kansas City’s Botanical Garden
Volunteers are invaluable to fulfilling the mission of Powell Gardens. It takes thousands of service hours to maintain the Gardens and offer meaningful experiences for our public visitors. Volunteers can commit to a weekly, monthly, or episodic schedule to help our staff continue the beautification and sustainability of this botanical haven.

- Indoor Tropical Plants
- Orchid Care
- Cut Flower Garden Maintenance
- Shade & Millstone Garden Maintenance
- Nature Trail Upkeep
The education team is currently looking for volunteers to help with:
