Volunteer at the Conservatory

Garfield Park Conservatory is always looking for energetic, dedicated adults to lend a hand in our gardens and programs like beekeeping, composting and family programs. If you are someone who enjoys sharing your passion for plants with people or someone who just likes to get your hands dirty – we probably have a volunteer opportunity for you! Most of our opportunities have a minimum time commitment, but our volunteer positions are flexible and accessible by a variety of busy adults.


Volunteer & Service Groups

Groups of five or more volunteers can help out around the gardens or at a special event. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator to schedule an adult group volunteer opportunity.

Corporate Volunteer Groups

Opportunities abound for your next corporate volunteer engagement. Please visit our Corporate Partners page for more information.

Youth Volunteers

Our program is designed for adult (18+) volunteers. Volunteers ages 16 or 17 may volunteer alongside a responsible adult. We also have opportunities through select partner schools.
