Become a Volunteer

  Join the Volunteers for gardening, fun, and comradery!

Creativity, comradery, a passion for and/or gardening skills help assist in furthering the ideals and activities of Sherman Library & Gardens.  Volunteers help make Sherman Gardens the warm, wonderful, and amazing gardens, not only for our local community, but, for all that visit!  Join a wonderful group that welcomes your volunteerism.  


Monthly Business Meeting
The Volunteers meet the third Tuesday of the month (no meeting in December) in the Tea Garden at 9:30 am.  This meeting includes updates from Sherman staff, visiting speakers, and an opportunity to socialize with other like-minded individuals.  

Monday Coffee
On the first Monday of the month, a fabulous breakfast is served by Volunteers in the Tea Garden.  We meet at 9 am and serve breakfast at 9:15 am.
