Longue Vue is committed to continuously improving our relationship with the natural environment. As a proud member of the Climate Toolkit Network through Phipps Conservatory, we have already eliminated leaf blowers on site (2019), eliminated single-use plastics (2021), gone plant-based in our cafe (2023), and use chemical-free gardening techniques.

Help us continue our journey in 2024! This year, our goal is to go 100% electric in our gardening equipment.

Volunteer in the Gardens!

Environmentally sensitive gardening takes work, but it’s worth it! Volunteer assistance helps our staff tremendously. Garden Volunteers meet every Thursday from 8:30AM to 10:30AM, and every second Saturday from 9:00AM to 11:00AM.

Please register to volunteer by date using the link below. For additional information including “no stooping” or low impact volunteer opportunities like seed packet stuffing, contact Aloe Lee at
