Volunteer Opportunities

At this time the gardens is looking for front desk and gift shop volunteers. We are looking for volunteers who love to visit with the public and who would love to sell unique gifts from our gift shop. We need 3-4 individuals who have a real interest in volunteering in this area. If you would be interested contact Courtney Olson, Guest Experience Coordinator and Tilted Tulip Gift Shop Supervisor-307-773-1041 or Trudy Fox, Volunteer Coordinator 307-637-6376 for more information. For the time being the Paul Smith Children’s Village is full for volunteers and individuals may be put on a waitlist for volunteering at this site.

Why Volunteer?

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.

 

What Will I Be Doing?

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.

“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
