Garden at The Battery! Gardeners work side-by-side with our professional horticulturalists to plant, weed, divide, prune, rake, and perform the tasks required to maintain The Battery’s beautiful perennial gardens.
Volunteers join us Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 9:30 am to noon.
All new volunteers are required to attend an orientation session which is arranged as part of the registration process.
The Battery Core Group
The Battery Conservancy relies on dedicated volunteers who participate regularly. We call them The Battery Core Group, and they are qualified to volunteer outside the weekly scheduled volunteer hours. They earn service-based rewards, receive invitations to special events and activities, and gain advanced training in horticulture.
Battery Core Group Requirements:
- Complete a minimum of 8 days in the garden each year
- Learn the location of each garden bed
- Show progress in identifying the plants in the various gardens
