7:30am to 1:00pm
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.
You MUST also register with the Denver Botanic Gardens to secure your spot at: The official Yale Day of Service shift will be the morning of Sat., May 11 from 7:30am to 1:00pm (“Relief Volunteer Assist as needed for event”), though feel free to sign up for more!
Volunteers can park in the Gardens’ garage across the street (accessible from York and Josephine); there are also bike racks and a B-Cycle station right at the front entrance.
Kick your gardening season off right at the Gardens’ Spring Plant Sale! The Spring Plant Sale occurs every Mother’s Day weekend at Denver Botanic Gardens – this year’s features fifteen divisions including aquatics, fruits/berries/veggies, hanging baskets, herbs, houseplants, rock alpine, specialty succulents, summer bulbs and water-smart!
Volunteers will be assisting Gardens staff with tasks of varying intensity from greeting guests, moving and unloading plants, and managing sales. The plant sale opens to the public right at 8am; the Gardens asks that all volunteers check in between 7:15am and 7:30am Saturday morning. Breakfast, snacks, coffee, and training will be provided during this time before the sale opens.
Volunteers get 10% off all purchases at the plant sale, and admission to the Gardens is free that day, so please feel free to invite friends and family to pick some veg and enjoy the Gardens in the afternoon!
