Volunteers lead tours through the greenhouses and gardens and staff our reception area and exhibition gallery. They develop thematic tours, provide hospitality for events such as the opening of the Spring Bulb Show, and assist with exhibitions. (Please note, however, that volunteers do not engage in any hands-on horticultural work.) Volunteer training sessions are held once a year in January, followed by training tours and monthly meetings. In exchange for the training, volunteers are expected to participate for at least one full year, including attending the monthly meetings.
