Volunteering in plant sales is a great way to help others learn about gardening and have fun at the same time. There is much to be done behind the scenes including helping with mailings for special events, answering the phones and keeping track of all the details that keep The Gardens running. Volunteer in the Gatehouse and Giftshop greet guests, check-in stock and answer lots of questions. Many families volunteer together to help with tasks.

Volunteering offers an infinite number of opportunities for growth and personal enrichment. Throughout its history, volunteers and their contributions have been vital to the success and growth of The Elizabethan Gardens. Last year volunteers gave more than 1,000 hours of their time and talents.

Our volunteer group will meets quarterly in February, May, August and November. Meetings will be held the last week of each month except when there is a conflict such as Labor Day. The following dates are scheduled for meetings May 22, August, 22 and November 28 and February 27 (2017).


All meetings will be one hour in length.


Meetings will rotate each quarterly from day meetings to evening meetings. Morning meetings will take place at 10:00 a.m. and evening meetings will take place at 6:30 p.m.   May and November meetings will be evening meetings and February and August will take place in the morning.
