If you are someone that loves working with children and are passionate about plants, consider signing up to volunteer in the 4-H Children's Gardens. The only way we can do this is through our dedicated and awesome group of volunteers.

Here is a sampling of the possibilities:

  • Tour Guide
  • Family Programs helper
  • Seeds of Science Educator
  • Butterflies in the Garden Docent
  • Garden maintainance helper

You don't need any special trainig to volunteer with us, but we will provide you with whatever training you want and feel you need. Often we pair new docents with one of our seasoned veterans to "learn the ropes".

We also have docent meetings every couple of months to hear speakers, go on field trips and enjoy food together. We all learn from each other and enjoy the great company.
