Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart of any public garden. The Peace River Gardens are no exception. Peace River Botanical and Sculpture Gardens is a vibrant volunteer hub and cultural center for Southwest Florida. Our volunteer community is a place to share knowledge and continue learning in a tranquil and creative setting. We welcome volunteers in a variety of roles, as our volunteers play an integral role in all aspects of the growth and development of the Gardens.

What are your interests?

We WELCOME new volunteers! Sign up: click here to download an application to print and mail.

We also welcome students completing service learning hours and social or corporate groups that want to work together to make a difference!

All volunteers will meet with our volunteer coordinator for orientation and training. You will be well informed about how to work in the Gardens! We host an annual Volunteer Recognition Event to which you will also be invited. It’s fun! Join us.
