Friendship Botanic Gardens annual volunteer day will be held on Saturday, March 27th.

March 12, 2021

Friendship Botanic Gardens will be hosting its annual “Wake Up the Gardens” Volunteer Day on Saturday, March 27 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Central. 

Volunteers are needed to assist with the spring cleanup and prepare the grounds for the Gardens’ season opening on Sat., May 1. The Gardens are primarily a volunteer-based organization and any help is welcome and appreciated. At the event, volunteers will be raking leaves, picking up fallen branches and sticks and cleaning up other debris on the grounds. Volunteers will each have their own cleanup area, and will therefore not be within close proximity of one another. 

This is a great opportunity for students to get community service hours! Please bring your own rake and garden gloves, if possible. Water and light snacks will be provided. Dress for the weather, as this event will occur rain or shine! Please RSVP to or (219)-878-9885 by March 24.

Friendship Botanic Gardens is located at 2055 East U.S. Highway 12, Michigan City, IN 46360. For more information, visit our Facebook event page.
