...in the lives of our students and greater community.

Volunteers play a crucial role in accomplishing our mission, and there are many ways you can get involved. There are opportunities to work after school with students, doing garden maintenance when it fits your schedule, joining community work days alone or with a group, or lending a hand with fundraisers and community events.

Volunteer

Community Work Groups

Work groups are a great opportunity for companies and organizations to build teamwork and have fun together outside of the office. Work groups help us complete specific projects in our gardens, either on our monthly Saturday Community Workdays, or during one-time events such as Day of Caring. Groups can contact us to schedule work days at any time of the year.

Garden Maintenance Volunteers

For those who love to get their hands dirty, we offer volunteer garden maintenance opportunities. These volunteers provide weekly assistance with watering, weeding, and sometimes building and other garden tasks. Our schedule is quite flexible for this; however, we ask that you commit to a fairly regular schedule, so that we can plan accordingly.

Garden Project Volunteer Team

If you’d like to get involved at our garden sites, but aren’t able to commit to a regular schedule, this is the team for you!

By signing up for our Garden Project Team, you’ll receive a monthly email highlighting one-time volunteer opportunities at our sites to help us complete gardening projects. These projects will be limited to individuals or very small groups and organized to ensure distance between volunteers in a safe and fun outdoor environment.
