Volunteering at the Fullerton Arboretum
As a member of the Arboretum, you have a special opportunity to volunteer with us.
Members who are interested in becoming volunteers must first attend a Volunteer Orientation.
This two-hour session includes a tour of the garden, an overview of our volunteer opportunities and time to visit with volunteers. From this orientation, interested members can determine the best match for their time and interests.

Plant Salespeople serve as cashiers or provide general assistance to customers shopping for plants propagated and grown in our nursery. We also need help for annual events such as the Monster Tomato Sale in March. Salespeople volunteer on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Weekends
Docents provide guided tours of the grounds, our Victorian Heritage House and in our museum. Docents also greet visitors in our Nature Center. We provide the training and most tours are weekday mornings and weekends.
Potters help propagate, pot, water and prepare plants for sale. Potters volunteer Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
Cultivators work in partnership with the Arboretum staff to maintain and develop the gardens.
Outreach Volunteers can support the Education program by assistance with classes or help with community outreach through our Speaker's Bureau.
