Garden Workers –March
Tryon Palace Gardens need YOU!!! We are looking for Master Gardeners, Horticulturists, Garden Enthusiasts, General Yard Workers, and Carpenters to work in the Tryon Palace Historic Gardens. Some background in gardening is great but none is necessary, just a willingness to learn. We are looking for volunteers to come in for pruning, planting, raking, mulching, watering, weeding, fence repair, trellis work. We appreciate volunteers who are willing to come in on a regular basis but it is not required. It is recommended that volunteers bring garden gloves, sunscreen, hat, insect repellent and water or a water bottle.
Volunteers are needed during the hours of 8:00 am – 11:30 pm, Tuesday through Thursday each week. Contact me at 252-639-3560 or [email protected] to sign up.

Historical garden information will be provided but looking for people with plant knowledge. It is recommended that volunteers bring sunscreen, hat, insect repellent and water or a water bottle.
4 Volunteers are needed during the hours of 10am-2pm, March 23, 2019. Contact me at 252-639-3560 or [email protected] to sign up.
