Whether it’s indoors or out, working with plants or working with people, it takes many hands to run the Gardens!
Come to help MBG grow and develop! You will learn more about plants for our area and the benefits of environmental stewardship.
We are always looking for volunteers to help on the grounds, in the office, or at events. Let us know how you would like to help. Whether you can help once or twice a year, or every week for an hour or two, we would like to hear from you!
We rely on volunteers to help with our special events throughout the year like Plant Sales, Holiday Market, and much more. From moving plants to folding brochures, from distributing flyers to picking up supplies, we can find you a task!
A group of volunteers who meet on Tuesday mornings to care for and propagate plants for use in the Gardens and for Plant Sales. This in-house support contributes a large amount of plant material that helps raise money to support MBG.
If you would like to work indoors, then consider joining the most important arm of any organization – our Petal Pushers are the “Tea and Sandwiches Division.” They serve as hosts for events, prepare the food for volunteers during Plantasia set-up, and also help with tasks such as bulk mailing and binder assembly; all with grace and style, and often with cookies.
Whether you are an individual or a group looking for a worthwhile Community Service Project, we would love your help. We can help you decide on a good project that will suit your needs, and help the Gardens – from Plant Sale loading and unloading, or digging, or planting to building a bridge or a bench!
If you’d like to learn more about the Gardens and share that knowledge with visitors, become a docent! Docents teach visiting groups of all ages about the Gardens and our unique environment. Let us know you are interested and we will contact you about scheduled training sessions.
The Gulf Coast Herb Society maintain our Herb Garden. If you are interested in volunteering to plant and maintain this area, you can find more information on their website here.
