Volunteering at the Garden
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.

Volunteer of the Season
Oh, how we love our Volunteers! It takes many hands to help a garden grow and our Volunteers share their talents, enthusiasm and energy to many different areas within the daily and seasonal functions of the Garden, enjoying the beauty of nature, while playing important roles from horticulture to special events and educational tours. Our Volunteers generously give their gift of time and are the heart of Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden. We like to recognize one volunteer each season whom we feel has done an outstanding job.
Our Volunteer for the Season is returning for an encore summer performance! We miss seeing our Volunteer much during the fall and spring but during the summer our Volunteer spends a great deal of time working in the Garden and also with the Guild (check out her painted rocks in our Gift Shop). Our Volunteer is a teacher so during the summer, instead of working with students, she gets to work with plants. Plants need nurturing too and the Garden has come to be her special “recess” from school.
Our Volunteer for the Season is Trish Sprague! Please join us in thanking her for all of her hard work and support of the Garden. As a small token of the Garden’s appreciation, Trish will receive a gift certificate to a restaurant here in downtown Kernersville to enjoy!
