Garden Work Days

Each member is required to commit one hour of service work to the garden each month. Service hours help with the upkeep and maintenance of the community garden. Without volunteer hours the community garden will not be able to function properly and will fall into disrepair. Working together will make the community garden a beautiful place. When you become a member you will be able to sign up for one of our service teams and garden work days will be set by your team leader. However, you do not have to be a member to be a volunteer. There will also be a general work day for members and non-members. This general work day is voluntary and will consist mainly of non-members working with our staff members. However, members are encouraged to participate. If you are interested in becoming a team leader please contact us.
