Volunteer in the Garden: Learn Azalea Care
Abundant Azalea in Seattle Japanese Garden.
During late April and early May, Garden visitors have the opportunity to enjoy the garden in a unique way- as volunteers! While the Azaleas are at the peak of their bloom, the Seattle Japanese Garden could use a few extra hands to remove blossoms as they fade. Volunteering here is a great way to experience the tranquility and beauty of the garden. Removing blossoms, or deadheading, is a meditative and rewarding task. This season we are looking for individuals or small groups able to volunteer between 1:00 and 2:30 PM on Tuesday afternoons from April 28 to May 21. Due to the size and nature of the Japanese Garden only a few volunteer spots are available each week. Click here to email the gardeners, and seize this opportunity!
