Volunteering at the Missouri Botanical Garden

Garden volunteers are special people. They care. They have a sense of commitment to something greater than their own personal needs. They have a direct impact on achieving the mission and goals of the Garden. We recognize that our volunteers provide the Garden with a resource of talent that is unavailable in any other way. The Garden values this contribution and hopes to offer each volunteer a satisfying, productive, and rewarding experience.
