Do you like gardening and getting your hands dirty? Would you like to learn more about the gardens of the Morris Arboretum? Then being a horticulture volunteer just might be the task for you! Each week our dedicated volunteers rotate throughout the entire Arboretum working in a variety of terrains. Together they tackle a number of physical garden tasks such as weeding, mulching, pruning or invasive plant removal under the supervision of the Arboretum horticulture staff. Our current program runs one weekday morning a week, but we are hoping to expand to include other weekdays as well. Previous gardening experience is helpful, but not required.
