This year’s Children’s Garden Festival is around the corner and we need your help!  June 7-16th volunteers will assist guests at the entry gate as they step into the world of Where the Wild Things Are, help with games, play with kiddos at the sensory bins, help kids with free and paid crafts, and more.  It takes more than 350 volunteers to make this event happen.  Weekends are particularly busy and we need a lot of extra hands to keep things running smoothly.  Please consider volunteering and bringing your family, friends or coworkers to volunteer with us. Sign-up will be available soon. Email
