Interested in planning a group volunteer project with your office?
Corporate Volunteer Groups work together to complete projects in our indoor and outdoor gardens, or behind-the-scenes in our production houses alongside Conservatory staff. Projects range by the season and vary by group size. Whether you want to help out on a Featured Project or take on what is needed most that day, we ask that you first complete the Group Request form here to help us schedule your project. If you have questions, please get in touch with our Volunteer Coordinator. Please note that we kindly request a minimum donation of $250 to offset the costs of our project supplies and staff time. Once your Corporate Volunteer Group is confirmed, you can submit the donation using this form below.
