Volunteer

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are currently accepting new volunteers on an individual basis or in groups of less than 5 for certain events. Wylde Center's top priority is to keep our staff and volunteers safe in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, we are asking that volunteers follow strict protocol to ensure everyone's health. All volunteers must:

  • Wear a mask at all times
  • Maintain a minimum of 6 feet distance from others
  • Not share tools unless sanitized between users (ask for help with this from Wylde staff)

All opportunities are currently listed on our Hands on Atlanta page, where you may sign up. 

How To Volunteer

With many regular service opportunities, we welcome your help and encourage you to DIG IN! Volunteer opportunities are available in our gardens, the plant sale, or during one of our special events. 

All opportunities are currently listed on our Hands on Atlanta (below) where you may sign up. You can also sign up to receive monthly volunteer opportunities in your inbox, and let us know you're interested by taking our volunteer survey!

Court-Ordered Service

Looking to fill court-ordered service hours? The Wylde Center happily accepts court-ordered volunteers, who can sign up to volunteer using the above link after receiving prior approval. Please see our court-ordered service guidelines here, and fill out the necessary form here.

Ways to Volunteer at Wylde Center

Please Note: We recommend water, bug repellent, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, and appropriate work clothes when working in the garden. If there is a Health Advisory Warning, we advise that seniors and youth do not volunteer with us outdoors. If it is precipitating heavily or below 35 degrees, the workday will be canceled.
