Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

Friday, December 5 11:30 - 1 p.m.

Mark your calendars now, as The Gardens welcomes its volunteers to the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon Friday, December 5. You should receive your invitation soon, and your RSVP is requested by November December 1.

The event will again mark our milestone of being one of Birmingham's premiere attractions for over 50 years! All volunteers of The Gardens are welcome!

If you have questions about the event or need to RSVP, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Taylor Steele at 205.414.3962 or

Added Request!

Besides each volunteer bringing their pride covered dish, we would like you to bring something to share with a fellow volunteer (seated at your table). A symbolic gift of your own garden heritage! This could be anything from a funny garden hat, heirloom plants, old trowel, gardening calendar, watering can, seeds, etc...I know gardeners pick up small garden trinkets during travels, or receive as gifts from time-to-time.

Happy Holidays!
