Still not convinced?

We have volunteers of all ages. Green fingers or a scientific background are welcome, but certainly not required. And we can use your help all year round, both on week days and during weekends.

• You can roll up your sleeves in the greenhouses and gardens: repotting, planting, weeding ...
• You can guide visitors, man a booth during events, carry out surveys …
• If you are a handy do-it-yourselfer, you can help with the construction of our events.
• You can assist in the herbarium or you can help one of our researchers with a specific task.

You’ll work together with experts from the Botanic Garden. If necessary, we can provide you with guidance or training.

Thank you for your commitment
