Volunteers

Indoor and outdoor horticulture assignments for all skill levels await volunteers at the NOVA Parks Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, in Vienna, Virginia.

Hardy outdoor workers will find bulbs to plant, mulch to spread and flower beds to cultivate. Indoors, volunteers will help seedlings flourish in the greenhouse and Horticulture Building and perform clerical tasks.

Personal talents and interests determine assignments. Volunteers who serve four hours or more per month receive free admission to the gardens and invitations to special events. For information about volunteer horticulture opportunities, call 703-242-9425. To learn about volunteer opportunities in the gardens' Visitor Center and programs, call (703) 255-3631, ext. 301.

Great place to visit no matter what time of the year

Great place to visit no matter what time of the year it is. Lovely to just spend all day strolling around to see how many different birds or trees you can see. The garden has special features now and then like the night time light show which is really great. Be sure to buy some locally produced honey at the gift shop on your way out!

Beautiful and serene place

What a beautiful and serene place. We enjoyed every minute of our visit. Sit under a tree near pond and take in the beauty or go watch Kois in the pond. There are small nature trails for adventurous visitors.

Visit for a lovely and peaceful walk

Beautiful and unusual Korean style bell garden and botanical garden. Visit for a lovely and peaceful walk and be sure to pause to enjoy the koi thriving in the pond. Let the paths guide you up the hill to evocative protective statues and to a grand ceremonial bell. The gardens are full of butterflies and birds and will reward attention. Delightful for photography or just a walk. There is parking adjacent. The gardens are not free, but the fee is quite reasonable. Paths are wheelchair accessible but not necessarily easy because of hills, so be aware.
