In 2010, Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens, Inc. instituted the first ever volunteer initiative for support of Boerner’s significantly reduced horticulture staff.

Each year from March – October, FBBG recruits community members & corporate teams to come help out in the Gardens.  It’s fun!  It’s outdoors!  Any you are helping sustain Boerner – a vital community asset for engagement, renewal, healthy and fun learning.

FBBG offers a host of year-round volunteer opportunities!  You’ll have fun and support your community!
