Volunteer

The energy and creativity of volunteers provide essential support to our gardens and programs. We welcome volunteers with an interest in plants to help our Horticulture Staff maintain the Arboretum’s gardens.

Get involved as a volunteer:

  • We invite gardeners at all experience levels to join our Tuesday Volunteer Team, which will meet every Tuesday morning, April through November, from 9 a.m. to Noon. Projects will include mulching and edging of planting beds, dividing perennials, pruning shrubs, weeding, and much more. Please contact Anne Brennan (anne.brennan@temple.edu) for details about where to meet.

  • Experienced gardeners wishing to volunteer on a weekly basis may arrange with the Horticulture Supervisor to volunteer regularly in a specific garden area. Weekly Volunteers typically work a half-day per week and assist a Horticulture Staff member with all tasks needed to maintain the garden section throughout the season.

For more information about these volunteer opportunities for individuals 18 years of age and older, contact Anne Brennan, Horticulture Supervisor, at 267-468-8191 or anne.brennan@temple.edu.
