Corporate Volunteering

Corporate Volunteer Day

Volunteering at the Garden is a great way to foster teamwork, support environmental sustainability in the community, and discover a hidden jewel in your city!

Throughout the year, we partner with corporate groups to accomplish both horticulture and farm projects that keep our Garden clean, green, and growing.

Group projects run from April to June, and September to November and are typically held on Thursdays from 1PM to 4PM.

Corporate Engagement Fee

We are deeply grateful for the work of our volunteer groups. Your fee helps cover the costs of planning and executing our volunteer events. Work gloves, tools, snack bars, and water are provided to volunteers.

Groups of up to 15 participants are asked for a fee of $1,000

Groups of up to 30 participants are asked for a fee of $1,750 (Note: groups may be broken up into 2 activities)

Your corporate engagement fee must be made in advance of your volunteer day.

*The Garden is a member of Benevity and is happy to partner with other members for your volunteer contribution.

**Also available: Add lunch or a happy hour in the beautiful Garden! Featuring local Flushing culinary delights to celebrate your hard work.

Project Activity

Depending on the season and need, projects might include raking, mulching, weeding, bulb planting, tree care, garden bed maintenance, farm projects, and more. Participants must be able to bend and lift items that weigh 10 pounds. Dress for the weather and plan to get your hands and clothes dirty!

Weather Policy

All of our projects occur outdoors and weather can be unpredictable. With this in mind, we schedule a rain date on the Friday or Wednesday following the primary project date, and we ask groups to commit to a rain date whenever possible.
