Volunteers are the heart of the Peace River Gardens. 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 part in all aspects of the growth and development of the Gardens.
