Anyone with the slightest green thumb knows there is always work to be done in a garden. And there are plenty of tasks for brown thumbs, too. With 112 acres to develop and maintain, Friends of the Garden, nearly 30 supporting organizations, and the Springfield-Greene County Park Board rely on volunteers. As part of its coordinating role, Friends of the Garden helps recruit and train garden volunteers.
Garden volunteers support the Springfield Botanical Gardens in a variety of ways from gardening to building to administrative work and more. Whatever your interests and abilities, we can help you find a suitable way for you to contribute to the success of the Springfield Botanical Gardens. Training is available in many cases.
Friends of the Garden also has many passionate partner organizations which support the Springfield Botanical Gardens within their special interests. These organizations provide a sense of community while performing incredible work within the gardens. We encourage you to explore the opportunities available through these organizations.
