Volunteering

Not interested in a paid position, but would like to work at the happiest place in Rhode Island & Connecticut? Volunteering might be for you. We ask that volunteers commit to at least 3 shifts this season; as a small business, it is difficult for us to train one-time volunteers.

As a volunteer you receive one Tulip Team t-shirt and 10 u-pick tulips and other tulip benefits. If you work 40 or more hours, we will make a monetary donation, in your name, to a charity of your choice.
