Volunteer at the Gardens
The Gardens are designed, developed and managed by Hunter Region Botanic Gardens Ltd, a non-profit company of volunteers. We are always looking for more people to be part of our team. We have 100 active volunteers, coming to the Gardens on Mondays and Tuesdays and weekends. We have lunch and tea breaks together, as well as monthly guest speakers and social events. We also all help out on our annual special events such as Children's Discovery Day and Spring Fair.
