Volunteer with Olivewood Gardens

Become a volunteer today!

Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center is fortunate to be supported by a team of passionate and hard-working volunteers.  Volunteers are not only integral to the success of our program, but they also help demonstrate to students the caring and commitment of their larger community. We are seeking individuals who are passionate about environmental education; fresh, local food; working with children; community engagement; and hands-on gardening. Bilingual English/Spanish is a plus. 

Due to COVID-19, Volunteer Opportunities and Internships will look little different while we take the necessary guidelines to keep all volunteers, interns, program participants & staff safe. 

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jackie, for any questions.
