Volunteers play important roles in our day-to-day operations.

When you volunteer at Bartram’s Garden, you join a growing core of devoted supporters who quite literally bring our mission to life.

Outdoor Volunteers

We welcome volunteers on the second and fourth Saturdays of most months from April to October, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. Volunteers will work with our staff on seasonal tasks like weeding, planting, cleaning, pruning, and light maintenance.

No special experience or skills required. Dress for working outdoors, and if you have them, bring work gloves and a water bottle.
