VOLUNTEER

Help Keep QBG clean, green, and growing!

Make a difference. Be part of someplace special by volunteering at QBG.

Led by our knowledgeable staff, volunteers participate in a variety of activities—from seeding to weeding, or supporting our education and administration departments—while gaining new experience and skills. We welcome individuals, community organizations, corporations, as well as high school and college groups. We offer a pleasant work environment, friendly mentors, flexible scheduling, and the opportunity to be part of a special 39-acre urban oasis.

Unless otherwise specified, the opportunities listed are for INDIVIDUAL SIGN-UP ONLY.
