Urban Home Garden Volunteering

Open Opportunity



Primary needs in the Urban Home Garden are weeding and planting, maintaining and harvesting annual vegetables. Occasionally, we'll work on a special project, like a new bed or pruning fruit trees, and sometimes additional help is needed in the chicken coop. Work will vary based on the volunteers' skill set and interests. Volunteering in the Urban Home Garden will be an educational experience!

 Volunteers must be mobile, able to stand, bend and kneel for long periods of time. Bring gardening gloves, and wear comfortable clothing that can be in contact with soil; closed-toed shoes are mandatory. Additional suggestions: water bottle, sun hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, snack.
Learn how to grow and maintain vegetable gardens, keep chickens, and work with other edible perennials, trees and shrubs. Occasionally, volunteers will be able to take home produce from the garden, depending on the availability and quantity of harvests. You'll have the chance to make connections with other horticulture staff as well, depending on your interests. Verifiable volunteer hours (upon request).
Parking Details
Park near the south end of the parking lot (opposite from the visitor's center) and meet me in the Horticulture center. We'll walk down to the Urban Home Garden together.
