Volunteer at one, two or however many you choose – we’d love to see you.

  • Volunteers need to be comfortable working outside in the weather of the day, bending, lifting, kneeling and walking on uneven terrain.
  • Appropriate age for volunteers is listed with each project. Volunteers under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Volunteers will sign a participation waiver on site. Staff will offer a safety talk and provide any training needed for the project.
  • Most materials and tools will be provided.
  • Volunteers should bring their own water bottle and work or garden gloves. Closed-toe shoes are required.
  • Water will be available for refilling bottles.
  • Some sites may not have access to a restroom.
