What is your personal greening project?  Pick a project and fulfill your four hour a month membership commitment beginning first week of April when we will be meeting at the garden to clean and prepare for the Tulip Festival. We need people to help sweep paths, remove accumulated trash, mow the lawn in the amphitheater, turn compost, plant pansies, and clean the dregs of winter out of the garden. Garden work continues through November . Think about partnering with another garden member to share responsibility for a long term project you can undertake. We are “counting on you” to “pitch-in” and do your share in our all-volunteer community garden. Below are the several volunteer opportunities.

One thought on “Volunteer

  1. I am a community garden member, and I would like to volunteer. But, I am out of the city most weekends. Is there any way that I can volunteer during the week? Who should I contact about weekday volunteering.
    thanks.
