Garden Volunteers and Sponsorship

Many hands make light work!

We need many hands to bring garden lessons, edible and pollinator gardening  to our students. Here are the  volunteer opportunities:


  • Garden Maintenance: Work in the garden, weeding, watering, cleanup, pruning, and planting seeds and seedlings to keep the garden ready for the garden lessons. Minimum commitment: 3 months; 2 hours per week.

  • Garden Educators: Help teachers to deliver garden lessons in the outdoor learning lab - Garden of Learning. Minimum commitment: 3 months; 2 - 4 hours per week.

  • Garden Educator Assistants: Working with the Garden Educator, prepare curriculum lessons' setup, materials, and handouts. Minimum commitment: 3 months; 2 - 4 hours per week.


  • Garden Sponsor: Bring your group to the garden to participate in Community Work Days.  Provide plants for planting in the edible and/or pollinator gardens. Donate financially. Donate garden  tools, supplies, and equipment. Please view our Wish List for items that are needed for the garden.
