Memphis Botanic Garden is in need of volunteers to help support the growth of our Greenhouse. We ask that volunteers commit to volunteering on a regular basis, ideally weekly or bi-weekly, due to the nature of this project. Volunteering is generally divided into two shifts from 9 am-12 pm & 1-3 pm on Monday - Friday; Saturday shifts are from 9 am-12 pm, however this is flexible. 

Greenhouse volunteers will work under the supervision of horticulture staff. Tasks include weeding, tending soil, and more. Regular volunteers are eligible for exclusive perks including free horticulture classes and discounted/free plants and soil.
