Garden docents lead group tours, show off the Garden, and help us tell the transformative story of this historic park. Meet and visit with folks from all over America – and all over the world! Group and individual training is provided. As a docent, you’ll leave Garden visitors enriched with a greater understanding of our Garden’s unique past and appreciation for its growing future.

Garden caretakers dig in the dirt! Tasks include weeding, watering and monitoring the health of our plants across multiple Garden spaces and containers. Our caretakers work in teams with training and support from our horticulturalist to keep the Garden blooming beautifully. As a caretaker, you’ll help Garden visitors to experience firsthand the belief of Dr. James D. Munson that “beauty is therapy.”
