Come out to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and help us dig the tulip bulbs in preparation for the summer plant.

  • Two days and two shifts each day
  • 15 total volunteers allowed in each shift
  • All volunteers complete this online volunteer waiver. Set up an account and sign up:
  • Fill out personal info, then next screen select you are with Cargill
  • No plant matter may leave Arb groups (no tulip bulbs) due to Jumping Worm invasive species
    • Volunteers simply tell gate attendant at Arb upon arrival that they are volunteering with Cargill for tulips, they do not need to pay a fee

    • The group will meet outside of the Oswald Visitor Center

    • Volunteers should bring:
