We Need Volunteers, Please Join Us!

Volunteer opportunity to collaborate with other gardeners!

Create an incredible visual wonder with designed seasonal changes at the heart of Balboa Park.
The project will enhance the area while including community.
People of all ages can work toward a common goal while learning about botany and gaining gardening skills.
Gardening is an art form that can be easily accessible to all.

What does a typical volunteer day look like? Our Balboa Park volunteers will spend their time completing tasks such as
spreading mulch, watering the flower beds, trimming dead blooms from flowering plants as well as transplanting succulents,
plants and flowers. Did we also mention weeding? As experienced and newbie greenthumbs alike know, there is always
plenty of weeding to be done!

Working in our gardens you’ll get an up-close and personal look at a dizzying variety of flowers including: an array of
roses in different colors, baby’s breath, sunflowers, irises, tulips (depending upon the season), daisies, birds of paradise
and so much more. As tempting as it may be, of course, you can’t pick any of the flowers as they are for garden visitors to enjoy
but you can order arrangements made with very similar flowers online at bloomcentral.com

Botany for Kids will meet to work and learn at the garden on Saturday mornings.



John Noble and Coastal Sage Gardening will lead work with garden professionals.
Local organizations, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and student community services are all welcome.
