Garden in the Parks (ornamental gardening)

Volunteers can work alongside our staff horticulturists in our ornamental parks and gardens throughout the City. 

All tools and directions are provided on site. Prior horticulture experience is not necessary, and this is a great space to learn about ornamental gardening in the Lowcountry! 

Tasks can include seasonal planting, weeding, pruning, watering, mulching and more in various cultivated beds within Conservancy parks.
