Opportunity Details

One Great Morning of Raking - Maymont's Japanese Garden

Maymont is a 100-acre historic estate and park, located in Richmond, Virginia, with many unique experiences for all to enjoy. Over 800,000 guests per year visit to see the gardens and arboretum, to tour the historic Maymont Mansion, to learn about the James River ecosystem at The Robins Nature Center, or to encounter native Virginia wildlife and farm animals in their habitats.  Thousands come to Maymont for seasonal events, educational programs and to celebrate special moments in our rental spaces.

Since 1975, Maymont has been maintained and operated by the nonprofit Maymont Foundation. With a small staff, we rely on volunteers to help us create experiences that delight, educate and inspire all our guests. Whether you can give a few days a year or a few hours each week, your contribution will help this historic estate to thrive. And few organizations offer such a wide variety of volunteer opportunities!

Volunteer Position Description and Purpose:

Maymont’s Japanese Garden is a favorite place for many Richmonders, but caring for the garden is quite a task. To help with this endeavor, we need volunteers to assist the horticulture staff in raking the fallen leaves covering the garden. Please bring your own rake.

Any volunteer under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. There may be up to 5 volunteers under 16 per 1 adult chaperone.
