Position: Christmas light helpers
Organization: VanDusen Botanical Gardens
Location: Vancouver, BC

Help transform VanDusen Botanical Gardens into a festive, sparkling wonderland for this year’s Festival of Lights. This annual holiday event displays over one million colorful lights across 15 acres of the garden and we need your help to make that happen!

We are currently looking for light bulb testers to help our team prepare for this year’s light instillation. We are looking for volunteers to join us at the Garden from 10am – 2pm, Monday-Friday from Sept 16th - Oct 25th. Light testing is a group effort so this would be a great opportunity share with friends or family since everyone will all be working together. You will be working with other volunteers to test lights, sort string colors, assemble decorations and assist with other Christmas projects as they arise. We appreciate the help and welcome you to explore the garden after your shift. As a special thank you, volunteers who complete 3 or more shifts will receive 2 complementary tickets to this year’s festival of lights.

If you have any questions or if you are interested in helping out but the times listed don’t work for you please contact and let us know. We are currently looking into a few evening shifts to accommodate groups of volunteers.
