Be a Lyndhurst Landscape Volunteer!

Most volunteer programs at Lyndhurst are in the landscape and are a great way to expand your gardening knowledge, give back to your community, meet new people, and share your love of horticulture.  Our Landscape Volunteers work with our Curator of Historic Landscapes to help preserve and maintain our historic gardens and grounds.

Volunteer days are bi-monthly on the first and last Tuesday of the month, from the beginning of April to the end of September. You are welcome to join on any volunteer day.  The hours are 9:30-12:30 pm. You are welcome to stay for part of the time, or the whole session.  First-time volunteers should arrive at 9:30 for a quick orientation.

Instruction provided (tools limited).

Grab your gardening gloves and meet us in the Visitors’ Center courtyard!

Please email with any questions.




Please register your group ahead of your arrival on the morning of work!
