Join a Community of Dedicated Volunteers

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, The Gardens at Heather Farm relies on the work of volunteers to help us meet our goals. Volunteers donate more than 6,000 hours of service each year and participate in all areas of our operation, including garden maintenance, youth education, office administration and special events.

We’re happy to work with individual and corporate/group volunteers!

As a volunteer you can:

  • Have fun while learning new skills
  • Meet people who share your interests
  • Feel wonderful about contributing to our community and the GHF mission
