Wilmington Garden Day

Wilmington Garden Day Volunteers

The 71st Annual Wilmington Garden Day welcomes spring on Saturday, May 5th with its annual tour of homes and gardens throughout the greater Wilmington area. The tour not only showcases our beautiful surroundings but also raises funds to benefit children in need in our community and this year proceeds from the tour will support St. Michael's School and Nursery and the Friendship House. Be part of this wonderful event by volunteering for Wilmington Garden Day!

In order to volunteer, you must attend a training class to be held at Delaware Center for Horticulture (1810 N Dupont St, Wilmington, DE 19806) on April 30th from 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm OR from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm.

Details:

  • The event will be Saturday, May 5th from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm (rain or shine)
  • We need guides and house captains to sign up for the morning or afternoon shift
  • As we get closer to the event, we will assign volunteers to specific houses (if you are volunteering with friends, just let us know and we will try to keep you at the same location)
  • Volunteers will receive a free ticket to visit the other tour sites

This year’s tour includes several sites with varied terrain including hilly, sloped paths, natural
wooded areas, and gardens with different grade levels. Be prepared to ‘hoof it’ with sturdy,
comfortable shoes and appropriate attire so you can enjoy the day to the fullest. You do not need to be a garden expert to volunteer but we would appreciate it if you familiarized yourself with the Tour Guide to be able to field questions from guests.

If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact Gabrielle 302.547.2977 or [email protected]

Date: 05/05/2018 (Sat.)
