Volunteers are a big part of what makes this garden so special! Please consider joining our team of excellent volunteers. We have a variety of opportunities throughout the year for you to help sustain and improve the garden, both onsite and within the broader community. Whether your preference is to work with people, plants, or both, we have a job for you!
All volunteers are required to fill out an Individual Volunteer Service agreement prior to participation. You can download the form here. Completed forms can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Weekly Volunteer Work Party
Attend one of our drop-in work parties, every Thursday afternoon from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. Come dressed for the weather and ready to work alongside our knowledgeable staff. Work gloves and water bottles are recommended. Please arrive on time, so that we can debrief everyone together on our task, or project for the day. We meet by the back (white) door of the big house. Tasks vary from week to week, but a rough calendar can be found below. Please note that projects are subject to change, or TBD.
COVID 19 UPDATE; We have not been hosting our regualar ‘work parties’ for the last few months, in line with social distancing guidelines. If you are interested in volunteering, we are still having volunteers work in a more solo fashion, while still checking in with, and having an agreed upon task by our staff. We are trying to stay on the same schedule of having volunteers at the garden Thursdays, 1-3 pm. If you’d like to volunteer, please let us know ahead of time, so we can plan accordingly. Thank you 🙂
*We can also schedule groups of volunteers from companies, professional organizations, clubs, universities, and schools to come to the garden for days of services, work parties, team-building, and more. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Do you enjoy teaching others? Do you have an interest in nature-based education? Our youth programs aim to help kids create meaningful connections to natural spaces through games, activities, art, and play. We need passionate volunteers to help with youth programs such as summer camps, nature clubs, field trips, Garden Tots, and weekend events.
These programs are great opportunities for high school and college students (but all ages are welcome!). Volunteers must be at least 14 years old. We provide training to familiarize volunteers with program material. If interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-546-1281.
