The eyes of the world were on the Adelaide Botanic Garden after a rare and endangered Corpse Flower, aka Titan Arum, flowered for the first time in a decade.
We are currently seeking expressions of interest for a variety of volunteer roles with the Botanic Garden's Public Program team.
Volunteer support is essential to assist us in the delivery of our many high-quality programs and events that occur in our gardens every year.
We have several highly engaging volunteer roles on offer that vary from regular, weekly commitments to those required on an 'as needs basis'.
If you have a passion for gardening, healthy eating and working with young children, this could be the perfect volunteer role for you!
Support children from kindy through the primary years as they learn how our food grows, plant seeds and harvest produce from the garden in our Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden.
From time to time we run education events which need volunteer support. One example is our annual World Environment Day (WED) celebration for schools.
WED is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment.
Our event attracts over 2,000 students each year that participate in a range of interactive presentations designed to promote global awareness of issues relating to the environment and action we can all take to address these issues.
Administration volunteers roles are for those computer savvy people that would like to assist us in administrative duties such as records collation and data entry.
You would be a valued member of the botanic garden team, contributing to the smooth running of workshops and other public programs.
If one or more of the above volunteer roles appeal to you or someone you know, please fill out this short survey to register your interest.
We will then be able to get back in touch with you should any opportunities arise in the future.
Thank you and happy gardening!

The Titan Arum, or Corpse Flower, is known for its notorious smell - but did you know these plants have a fascinating life up to 10 years prior to the stinky inflorescent bloom?
