Viva Vizcaya!

“Gardening on Saturday morning at Vizcaya was a wonderful experience. Kris the (HandsOn Miami Project Leader) was so welcoming and pleasant. The staff from Vizcaya was so appreciative we were there to help out in their gardens. It is an amazing property. This event I would participate in again.”
-HandsOn Miami Volunteer, Iris G.
“I had so much fun at the "Viva Vizcaya!" event and I am so happy that the gardens are now restored and that everyone was working together to make it happen. I hope to do it again.”
-HandsOn Miami Volunteer, Olivia G.

“Another rewarding day of waste or litter clean-up at Vizcaya as well as some landscaping maintenance. Look forward to future volunteering opportunities. Thanks!”
– HandsOn Miami Volunteer, Carlos G.  

If you’re a fan of spending a few hours in a tropical paradise, this project is for you!
Volunteers will have the opportunity to work alongside Vizcaya Museum and Gardens staff to landscape and beautify the historic gardens and preserve James Deering’s vision for all who visit the park.  In the process, you’ll get to interact with Vizcaya in a way that visitors don’t have a chance to and learn more about the history of Vizcaya in the process. 

Best of all, volunteers are encouraged to stay and continue to explore the gardens after the project has been completed!

Need to know:

  • Minimum age with an adult is 16.  17+ can sign up and take part on their own.
  • Volunteers should dress comfortably for outdoor landscaping/gardening work.  A hat and sunglasses will make you even more comfortable!

Did you know...Vizcaya welcomes approximately 140,000 visitors each year!
Let service be your lasting mark on this National Historic Landmark!
