The Gardens' volunteer program nurtures fun and cultivates camaraderie. The harvest will be a beautiful garden for all to enjoy. Please contact The Gardens if you wish to participate: phone (618) 650-3070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to the efforts of many, 2010 was a vibrant and successful year for The Gardens at SIUE, with more than 2,800 volunteer hours. In response to several requests, The Gardens expanded its volunteer program in 2011. Volunteers will be greeted at The Gardens Center - our visitors' center and maintenance headquarters which has restrooms, a break room, lockers and convenient parking - on Arboretum Lane. The Gardens will provide tools and materials for volunteer activities and will consider all reasonable requests.
