“Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let’s stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another.” — Anne Raver
Volunteers are very important here at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens as they provide over 90% of the physical labor at the Gardens!
The award-winning Cheyenne Botanic Gardens volunteer program is horticultural therapy in action. Our volunteer workforce is primarily composed of seniors, youth at risk, youth working on special programs (merit badges or awards programs) and people with disabilities. We also have opportunities for people of any age and training, especially if they have special skills needed at the Gardens.
Volunteer tasks are matched to the abilities of the applicant. Some people prefer hosting the front desk, some like to weed and take care of the roses, while others prefer to work in the greenhouse grooming plants. There is always something needing to be done. The rewards are learning about gardening, solar energy, and sustainability, while making new friends and taking home fresh harvests.
