Volunteer & Outreach

Volunteering at the Greenwich Botanical Center is a great way to expand your knowledge of plants, give back to your community, share your talents, and make new friends.

Senior Outreach

SENIOR OUTREACH

The GBC has been providing Outreach projects to several local Senior facilities since 1992. With the help of our Horticulture Building volunteers, the GBC provides horticultural outreach activities to 150 participants from October to March. The goal of this program is to promote wellness, education and engagement for our community.
