Junior Volunteers


Point of Contact

Veronica Marquez

GROW Volunteer Coordinator

Junior volunteers are an integral part of the GROW Program. Engaging youth in the areas of horticulture, research, and education provides a unique experience that students can apply to their schooling and the workplace. Participants will understand the importance of giving back to their community and gain knowledge of all things botanical.

Volunteer days and times vary based on department availability. We do our best to work with student schedules and coordinate with them for different opportunities. Parents should review the application with their student to ensure they are providing all guardian contact information.
