Volunteering at the Garden

Volunteering at the Garden

Half the fun of a community garden is that we have many hands to get things done. Each member agrees to complete a minimum of 5 hours during the year. Here are some ways you can help:

Current Needs

1. Work on Compost to Share at End of Season.

2. Weeding Pathways & Shared Plots.

Ongoing Opportunities

Throughout the season we will try to provide you with volunteer opportunities to make it easy (and fun!) to fulfill your hours. These are some basics you can complete on your own listed in the Garden Guidelines volunteer tasks:
  • clean or repair tools
  • pick slugs and pull weeds from community plots (look for community plot label)
  • clean greenhouse

Annual Volunteer Events

The first volunteer event of the year is the Spring Work Party to kick off the growing season. It’s a fun way to meet your fellow gardeners and neighbors, ask questions, and be a part of planning the season while sneaking in some early volunteer hours. At the end of the season we also have a Garden Clean Up Party to close out the gardens. Our goal then is to remove the past season’s plants, roots and all, and prep the beds for spring planting. You can add soil, compost, and lime to your plots.
