Volunteer at Bookworm gardens


Bookworm Gardens would not exist without the help of our amazing volunteers. From the moment the project began back in 1999, the majority of the work has been done by volunteers who share a passion for literature and gardening. We value the considerable talents offered by our volunteers, and consider them to be part of our Bookworm family.
