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


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

We are looking for a volunteer to help with plant signage who could invest 4 hours weekly or every other week. If you are computer literate, the sign engraving program can be taught quite easily. We definitely need help catching up on our signage to keep our guests informed of the different species, so please help if you have the time and skills!
