Atlanta Botanical Garden - Gainesville
Volunteer opportunities, particularly those focused on educational programming, provide an excellent opportunity to connect with children and families and better our community.
Whatever your passion, the Garden can use your interest and talent. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn more about gardening, or develop a new skill. There are many volunteer opportunities that are great for novice gardeners, Master Gardeners, or even those who are not blessed with a green thumb. Volunteer positions range from assisting with educational programs and special events to providing horticultural assistance - all essential to enriching the visitor experience. Wherever you volunteer, you will make a difference! Below is some information regarding the volunteer application process.
If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, please follow the link below to complete the Volunteer Application and return it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your application is received, the background check will be forwarded to you. All volunteers will receive orientation at the Garden that includes a tour and an overview of our Volunteer Policies and Procedures.
