Volunteers Making the Spectacular Holiday Blooms

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 Opportunities at the Garden:

  • Gardening - Planting, weeding, mulching, digging, raking and pruning

  • Welcome Center Desk - Answering the phone, meeting, greeting and introducing the Garden to our visitors

  • Retail Sales - The Dolores and Wyatt LeFever Garden Gift Shop, currently open Tuesday-Friday,    10am - 4pm

  • Special Events – Assisting with special events such as concerts, lectures, plant sales, symposia, etc.

  • Tour Guide/Docent - Leading tours through our Welcome Center and Gardens for scheduled groups. Docents will be provided with training, a guide book and notified of garden display changes.  

  • Special Skills you would like to share such as the making of the Spectacular Holiday Blooms

Volunteer of the Season

“The broadest, and maybe the most meaningful definition of volunteering:  Doing more than you have to because you want to, in a cause you consider good.” – Ivan Scheier

 

Our talented and hardworking group of volunteers is one of the great strengths of Paul J. Ciener Botanical 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.

 

Our volunteer this past season joined the Garden long before we opened to the public in April, 2011 and has volunteered to do whatever is needed including, volunteering at our plant sales, at our reception desk meeting and greeting visitors, staging and hosting special Garden events, getting our Gift Shop ready for it’s grand opening, organizing a garden guild that contributes unique items (many made by her) to be sold in our Gift Shop, and working for the past two years making tulips, and flowers for our Spectacular Holiday Blooms display.

Our Volunteer for this season is Anna Warner.  Please join us in thanking Anna for all that she has done for the Garden.  We were truly blessed to have Anna as part of our Garden family.  As a small token of our appreciation, Anna will receive a gift certificate to a restaurant in in downtown Kernersville to enjoy!
