Volunteer Opportunities

 

CitySprouts uses volunteering as a way to bring the school community, families, and community members together to create vibrant learning gardens for children. Through volunteering, CitySprouts invites individuals and groups to help create a world where every child grows up with a garden to explore and learn in. Volunteers contribute to our mission at all skill levels, in the gardens, at the office, or elsewhere.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Andrea Locke or fill out the volunteer form below.

Groups

We gladly organize projects at one or more of our sites for our corporate sponsors. We recognize that hosting a group in the garden gives our corporate partners a chance to see the impact of their sponsorship, and we appreciate the positive difference their volunteer contribution makes. Email alocke@citysprouts.org for more information about volunteer opportunities for our corporate sponsors.

Individuals

From helping press apple cider in the fall to waking up the school gardens in the spring, CitySprouts relies on volunteers who are willing to lend a hand. See below for a list of our seasonal opportunities.

Summer

CitySprouts relies on the help of skilled garden volunteers to help keep our partner schools' gardens growing and thriving through the summer months. The Garden Volunteer commits to caring for a specific garden during some or all of the summer, communicating with CitySprouts Volunteer Coordinator the beginning and end dates for which they will be responsible, and any vacation or travel time for which the Volunteer Coordinator will need to secure other coverage.
