Volunteer with Us

Anderson Japanese Gardens is always looking for fun, high-energy volunteers with a passion for the outdoors and Japanese culture to assist in its daily operations.  Our volunteers are a diverse group of dedicated individuals who bring a unique mix of personal experiences and professional backgrounds to create a dynamic team.


Volunteers serve as Garden Monitors, Tour Group Leaders, Office Assistants, and Gift Shop Volunteers.  Volunteers are asked to commit to at least two, four-hour shifts per month during the open season (May-October).  Training is provided and team outings and social events are scheduled year-round.
