Become A Newport Secret Garden Tours Volunteer

Imagine yourself sitting in a very stunning colorful garden with a variety of trees and flowers, the sun shining down, a cool breeze grazing your face, and the sound of birds happily chirping away. Sounds delightful, right? The Newport Secret Garden Tour is looking for volunteers for the upcoming September Tours which will take place On and Off The Avenue on September 11-13, from 10 am to 5 pm. These beautiful gardens are shared with the community to help raise funds for the arts education programs in the Islands public schools. As a thank you for volunteering, you will receive a free ticket for the tour that is valid all weekend long to visit all the lovely gardens on the tour. And who doesn't love free tickets? If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or have questions, please email us: We generally assign two host/hostesses per garden, for each 3 to 4 hour shift. Volunteer with a friend and make a day of it. Since 1984, the organizers and supporters of The Secret Garden Tour have been dedicated to enhancing art education and cultural programs in Aquidneck Islands Public Schools, funding dozens of programs in music, theater and fine arts for local schoolchildren. To date, The Secret Garden Tour has given more than $1 million to these programs.
