Volunteer

Garden volunteers are special people. They care. They have a sense of commitment to something greater than their own personal needs. They have a direct impact on achieving the mission and goals of the Garden. We recognize that our volunteers provide the Garden with a resource of talent that is unavailable in any other way. The Garden values this contribution and hopes to offer each volunteer a satisfying, productive and rewarding experience.

The Knoxville Botanical Garden is an extraordinary place for volunteers to come and share their gardening talents, develop new skills, meet new people and of course, have fun! Our volunteers provide KBGA with an amazing resource and are greatly valued for their contribution to the gardens.

If you are interested in volunteering at KBGA, we would certainly love to have you! Please contact our Senior Gardener, Rachel Dugan at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to work out the details. We hope to hear from you soon!
