ZBG Horticulture Volunteers


Welcome to the Zilker Botanical Garden Horticulture Volunteer page!  Hort Volunteers at ZBG work along with the Hort staff to complete a variety of projects in the Garden, including (but not limited too): weeding, planting, trimming, dead heading, mulching, and general cleanup. While experience is always appreciated, it is not necessary.

At this time we are only able to accept volunteers ages 18+. Thank you for your understanding. 

Opportunities are currently offered 2 times a week, generally Wednesday, Saturday, mornings from 9:30 am - 11:30 am.  Please be sure to sign up at least 24 hours before each event so that staff can plan accordingly. Generally, ZBG will provide all necessary tools and materials unless otherwise specified, but feel free to bring any personal favorites.  More info on dress code, parking, and other requirements can be found under the "Documents" tab above.

Hi! I’d love to volunteer on Saturday or Sunday morning. Would that be possible?
