Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is a folk art environment, gallery space, and nonprofit organization that showcases the work of mosaicist Isaiah Zagar. Located at the site of Zagar’s largest public mosaic installation, the Magic Gardens includes a fully mosaiced indoor gallery and a massive outdoor labyrinthine mosaic sculpture.
You can support Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens by donating your time and energy. PMG is most interested in volunteers who can contribute their time on a regular basis, such as weekly, bi-monthly or monthly. They also hire Garden Guides.

Volunteers can be as involved as they want to be at Magic Gardens; they are open to ideas and eager to meet you! All volunteers must schedule a time to meet with PMG staff prior to their first volunteer shift. Interested volunteers should email email@example.com with their interests and background.
