Many volunteers assist as Docents, providing tours of the gardens for visitors. Others help in the Gardens, the Gift Shop, or the office. Many special projects also benefit from volunteer assistance. For example, in the Gardens, various wood and bamboo substructures such as the bridges, the wooden lamp posts around the pond, the well, the main gate, and the fences that lead up to the gardens have been restored with the help of volunteers like Bruce Heister and Jim Sugai.
