The Henry Schmieder Arboretum welcomes the participation and enthusiasm of those who join our volunteer Partners Program. Members of our Partners Program are involved in a variety of activities which provide the Arboretum with support and assistance. Such activities include:

  • Seasonal gardening
  • Events planning and hosting
  • Planning and staffing our booth at the annual Bucks Beautiful Garden Fair
  • Our Members Plant Swap
  • Our annual display at the world-famous Philadelphia Flower Show

Benefits of becoming a Partners Volunteer
The Arboretum offers our volunteers the opportunity to learn from faculty and staff, enjoy an annual trip to a local garden-related site, an annual thank-you luncheon and picnic and receive a discount at The Market (Shadybrook's Market at DelVal)
