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 recurring schedule to help our staff continue Powell Gardens’ beautification and sustainability.

There are a variety of different areas in which volunteers are needed: administration, development, docents, events, and gardens.

Individuals and groups are welcome. Simply sign-up through the links below or contact volunteer@powellgardens.org for more information.
