UGArden Herbs depends on volunteers to keep the farm running. Volunteers help us plant, harvest, weed, cultivate herbs, and lots more. We accept volunteers of all ages, non-student and student alike. We will teach you everything you need to know so there’s absolutely no experience necessary. We provide tools, gloves and encouragement.

As much as we love our volunteers, we ask that you sign up or schedule your volunteer time in advance. This allows us to plan for your visit and insures a positive experience for everyone. You can search and register for harvest and herb crew events on Engage Georgia.


If you are a UGA student, you can sign up for an herb internship for class credit. You will learn all aspects of the herb program, especially growing harvesting and drying a large variety of medicinal herbs. Most hours are worked on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

Summer internship: 12 hrs/week

Fall/Spring internship: 10 hrs/week
