We love hearing from people to who would like to work the gardens, welcome guests, help with administrative duties, manage soil and raise produce, and more.  With 14 botanical gardens on an 83-acre campus and events taking place all year, there’s plenty to do and we’d love to have you join us.

For corporate teams interested in group volunteerism, days of service, or volunteer retreats, please contact Beth Kingston, Manager of Grants and Gifts, at (718) 425-3511 or bkingston@snug-harbor.org.
