Volunteers were instrumental in the formation of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and volunteers continue to play a major role at the Garden today. Our 600+ volunteers work with staff in every area to make the Garden what it is today — from weeding, planting, and pruning, to welcoming guests and giving tours of our Garden.

We appreciate the valuable gift we get from all of our volunteers — the gift of time. Without volunteers, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden could not offer the community all of the knowledge and beauty that the Garden represents.
