Enjoy being part of a vital volunteer community that keeps the grounds beautiful and the trees and flowering plants blooming.
Volunteers will enjoy free admission to the Fruit & Spice Park, located at 24801 SW 187th Avenue in Homestead. No experience is necessary. Training will be provided.
The volunteer program is open to high-school and college students (including university clubs⁄frats⁄sororities), as well as civic and corporate groups who want to work for a day, a week, a month, or year-round. This is a great way for students to earn community service hours and for everyone to experience impactful community service, as they develop horticulture and gardening skills.
Volunteers will be assigned age-appropriate hands-on work. Work times will be pre-arranged. Participants should be prepared for the outdoors, bringing their own water, sunscreen and insect repellent.
