“Above all, working with the students taught us the value of celebrating small victories, of committing to a task whole-heartedly and of the peace and accomplishment to be found in the garden.” – Jenni, After School Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Global Gardens. Being in the garden and working side by side is the best way to see the true impact of the program. We hope you will join us!


All volunteers are required to attend a volunteer training and complete a background check prior to working with students.
