Volunteer


Join us at the garden!

There are so many ways to help us make a greener community. One way is to donate your time and energy, whether through hands-on participation in our bi-monthly work days or by helping us plan, organize, and communicate our goals and mission. Maybe you have a flair for event planning or unique skills such as carpentry, plumbing, database management or graphic and web design.

If you’d like to join us to get your hands dirty, please dig in to the work day info below. If you’re interested in taking your participation even further, please contact us to learn more about board and committee service, or to contribute your special skills.

Workdays:

Join us to meet your neighbors and fellow gardeners, and help improve and maintain the garden site.  Help us weed, mow, mulch, plant, and more! Workdays are on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays from March through November. The day begins at 9am and continues until we’ve completed our to-do list, usually about 1-3pm. Drop in for 30 minutes or for the entire day! During July and August, we’ll be beating the heat with mornings only, from 9-12, and will add a weekly Monday evening session to keep up with the watering and weeding. Check the events page for details.
