Volunteer at the Gardens

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is a gift-supported nonprofit organization staffed by volunteers. We invite community members to lend a hand!

How Can you help?

Volunteers are the heart of Alta Vista Botanical Gardens.

We do everything from weeding, watering and planting to running events.

We design gardens, sign-up new members, serve on the board of trustees.

How would you like to help? Let us know!


Volunteer Opportunities
  • Here are some of the many ways you can lend a hand.

    Garden Fest Events

    Each year the Garden hosts festivals to invite the community to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and to support the garden through fundraising. Volunteers help organize and set up, they work in booths on the day of the fest. You can enjoy the festivals and make a difference, too.

    • Meading in the Garden
    • Earth Day
    • July 4th Fireworks and BBQ
    • Fun Fall Festival
    • Novemberfest


Individuals, groups or businesses are invited to select a garden area to “adopt”.  You visit your area on your time schedule, keeping it beautiful and maintained. We will provide botanical education and equipment. Your name will be posted in the garden to acknowledge your work.

Grow Getters

Do you have a green thumb? Our Grow Getters could use your help! This group meets the first Sunday of each month in the garden nursery. For more information, check out our Meetup Page:https://www.meetup.com/Alta/Vista/Gardens/


The Garden board welcomes volunteers to help with managing the social media and marketing, volunteer and membership activities, outreach, website, photography and more. Let us know if you have a special talent to interest to share.

I know nothing about gardens, but this place is a hidden gem for Vista. Donated land and an all volunteer staff have created a wonderful botanical garden. Take the family, take a date, and enjoy a quite afternoon with plants and short trails.
