May Volunteer Day – Tropical Plant-Out!

Sunday, May 15, 2022, 10am-1pm

It’s time for our 100+ tropical plants to take their places in the garden – this day is all about getting them safely to their summer homes.

Planting out our tropical specimens is a huge annual undertaking. Volunteers will work with garden staff to identify the appropriate location for each plant, dig out its seasonal planting hole, and safely tuck it in place.

Perks of volunteering include access to the garden and our incredible stock of powerful plant allies, refreshing beverages made fresh, plant and knowledge shares, and community!
