Volunteers are essential to all aspects of the Gardens’ operations. We need help on weekends and during the week. As a volunteer at the Garden, you will:

Meet other volunteers and staff with similar interests;
Gain satisfaction from donating your time knowledge, and talents for the enrichment of your community; Have an opportunity to have hands-on experience with various aspects of gardening.

We are currently seeking volunteers for gardener assistants, special events aides, garden admission greeters, docents and garden shop assistants. Call us at 352-372-4981 or email us at kbgvolunteer@gmail.com


If you have carpentry skills we have many small and large projects that are needed.

We need help as a garden greeter that could fill in open shifts. We have at least one four hour open slot every week.

We are looking for graphic design help if you can have these skills.

We need gardening help in the Vinery, Rose Garden, Herb Garden, Woodland Garden, Children's Garden, Herb Garden, Aroid Garden, Ginger Garden and Bulb Garden. If you can volunteer frequently, you can adopt the garden being the sole gardener maintaining that area!!!

If you have four or more consecutive hours to volunteer a week, most of our gazebos need to be washed with soap and water and then repainted. We have a about a dozen gazebos that need a facelift!

If you have either a camera or smart phone that takes nice photos, we are looking for someone who can take photos weekly to be used to promote the gardens. This will in turn build your photography portfolio.

For large groups, we have several areas of the garden with invasive exotics that need to be removed, such as Ardisia, Clerodendrum bungii and more!

If you are knowledgable about plant taxonomy, plant identification and computer savvy, we need help engraving our plant sign labels.
