Membership volunteers greet Fairchild members and introduce visitors to the benefits of a Fairchild membership including free garden admission, invitations to members-only lectures, Moonlight tours and the Members’ Day Plant Sale as well as reciprocal membership to other botanic gardens, arboreta, conservatories and science museums. Membership volunteers are stationed at garden entrances on weekends from December through May and during Fairchild festivals all year.
Volunteers are comfortable with sales and enjoy speaking with the public. Membership volunteers work outside in a variety of weather conditions and may be sitting or standing for 3-4 hours depending on their job assignment.
Membership volunteers work on weekends and for festivals. Shifts are morning and afternoon.
