Event Date

Acacia Grove

Join us for a day of giving back to nature and the community while experiencing the therapeutic effects of spending time outside! No prior gardening experience is needed to participate. Everyone over the age of 18 is welcome. At this event volunteers, with help from our professional staff, will help with weeding, pruning and mulching. It's a perfect way to come together with fellow outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy some fresh air and exercise while helping beautify our beloved landscapes.

Gardening tools as well as light refreshments provided. Close toed shoes are required. Pants and a long-sleeved shirt are recommended. Please wear clothes you are comfortable getting dirty and bring gardening gloves if you have them. Loaner gloves will also be available for the day.

Register today and meet us at the Acacia Grove!

Can't make it on Jan. 13? Sign up to hear about future volunteer opportunities.

Food for thought:  If you are hoping to organize a volunteer event for a larger group or organization, please contact Kitty Bolte, GATEways Horticulturist, at to discuss options that might work for your group.
