The Green Team

Green Team Volunteers

Joining the Greenwood Gardens’ Green Team is a great way to connect with nature in a beautiful historic garden. Learn from our expert horticulture staff who will offer clear instructions and guidance along the way.

Work activities include general garden maintenance, planting container displays and occasional greenhouse work. The volunteers assist staff with planting, watering, weeding, pruning, mulching and working on special projects.

We encourage you to join our monthly plant walks to learn about our garden and view the impact of your contributions!

Garden Docents

Greenwood Docents

Trained Volunteer Docents help educate the public and enhance the experience of all who visit Greenwood. Tours are held seven days a week, May through November, and focus on Greenwood’s history, horticulture features, conservation, and stewardship efforts. Qualified applicants attend a day of training and work with a mentor until they feel comfortable leading tours on their own.
