Our volunteers generously donate their time, talents, and enthusiasm every day at Reiman Gardens. Volunteering with the Gardens is a creative and effective way for residents and students to learn and give back to their community. It is hard to measure their impact, but it is easy to see and feel the difference our volunteers make every day.

Our volunteers are ISU students, individuals, and service groups from Ames, Central Iowa, and throughout the state of Iowa. People volunteer with Reiman Gardens for many reasons, including to fulfill service requirements for a class or scholarship, to learn more about their community, to gain experience, to meet new people, to have fun, and more.
