Volunteer Groups

Dig in to support Bartram’s Garden

As stewards of this legendary landscape, we are honored to partner with neighbors and stakeholders who offer their time and talents in support of our mission. We welcome inquiries from volunteer groups.

Outdoor volunteer opportunities are available between April and October. Possible activities include planting, weeding, harvesting, sorting seeds, light carpentry, and cleaning. Volunteers work closely with our staff, and all necessary equipment and instruction is provided. Activities can be tailored to accommodate the size of your group and participants’ particular skills or fitness levels.

All volunteer groups must be scheduled in advance, and date and project availability varies throughout the year. Our corporate partners and returning volunteers receive priority scheduling. All volunteers must sign a waiver before participating.
