Volunteers at The Hudson Gardens & Event Center generously contribute thousands of service hours in a variety of areas to help us provide enjoyable, educational, and memorable experiences for all visitors.

Recurring Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers play a vital role in our success. Becoming a Recurring Volunteer is an investment of your time, energy and heart. At Hudson Gardens, we believe the skills, talents, and dedication of our volunteers set us apart from other event centers. From gardeners to field trips and special event assistants, we have a number of volunteer positions to fit a variety of interests and skills. See what works for you.

Special Event Volunteer Opportunities

Love Hudson Gardens but don’t have the time to volunteer on a regular basis? If you are unable to make a recurring volunteer commitment but would like to be contacted for special events and other one-time volunteer opportunities, let us know.

How to Become a Volunteer

  1. Fill out an application. (We are currently only accepting special event volunteers right now. Volunteer registration for gardening positions will open again in March.)
  2. Attend an orientation
  3. Complete and pass a background check (if applicable)
  4. Coordinate with your designated Volunteer Supervisor from Hudson Gardens for scheduling and training

Volunteer Perks

Hudson Gardens volunteers receive as much as they give. In addition to spending time in a beautiful and restorative outdoor setting, volunteers gain knowledge and expertise in subjects such as horticulture, environmental education, public relations, and event management. Volunteers also receive special access to educational opportunities and Gift Shop discounts, while enjoying meaningful interactions with visitors and staff.

Please note that volunteer positions are not applicable toward court-ordered community service.
