It takes many hands to help a garden grow!  Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden’s volunteers contribute their talents, enthusiasm and energy to many different areas within the daily and seasonal functions of the Garden.  Our dedicated volunteers enjoy the beauty of nature, while playing important roles from horticulture to special events and educational tours while they generously give their gift of time to the Garden.

Volunteers of the Season

a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task

One of the great strengths of Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden is our talented and hardworking group of volunteers who assist in many different areas within the daily and seasonal functions of the Garden.  Our dedicated volunteers enjoy the beauty of nature, while playing important roles from horticulture to special events and educational tours while they generously give their gift of time to the Garden. Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden recognizes one volunteer each season whom we feel has done an outstanding job.

This season, we would like to recognize two volunteers who have been essential during the past months.  When we began the stay-at-home or shelter mode in mid-March, we kept all volunteers home. But when they were allowed to return to the Garden, two volunteers jumped right in to help with the much-needed garden maintenance.  They have been a huge help to our grateful  Garden staff.    

Our Volunteers for this season are Master Gardener Jim Hout and Sylvia Tazbir.  Please join us in thanking Jim and Sylvia for all that they do for the Garden.  We are truly blessed to have them as part of our Garden family.  As a small token of our appreciation, Jim and Sylvia will receive a gift certificate to a restaurant in downtown Kernersville to enjoy!
