Volunteer with The Garden Project

There are numerous ways community members can volunteer at various stages in the project:

  • Workshop Volunteers: The monthly gardener discussion groups/workshops will need volunteers for promotions, set up and breakdown, transportation, facilitation, gardening information distribution
  • Community Outreach: On going promotion of the project to the community will provide ample volunteer opportunities including (but not exclusive to) staffing information booths at farmers markets and community festival and other events, personal presentations about the project as churches and other meetings of community organizations,  development of promotional collateral (flyers, etc)
  • Media Interns: Helping to create a visual document of all project activities in photos and video will provide another opportunity for community members to volunteer with the project.
  • Organizational Support: Our planning meetings will be open to community members who feel they have something crucial to offer in the way of organizational resources.
  • Event planning: The marquis event for the project is the community potluck/feast featuring food grown in the project gardens. Organizing and executing this event will provide ample opportunities for volunteers of all kinds
  • Food Distribution: Each family will be required to donate a portion of the harvest to a local food bank or shelter. Coordination and distribution of this food will provide an opportunity for volunteers to participate
