  • To give back to your community
  • To become more active, productive and/or sociable

Heathcote Botanical Gardens is what it is today due to the work of numerous, dedicated volunteers. Today, even with a growing staff, volunteers still play a vital role at the Gardens and are needed on a daily basis.

There are a variety of Volunteer Opportunities you can choose from depending on your availability, physical capabilities, skills and desired level of involvement.
