We’re Hiring – Applications Due Monday

Our Program Educators play a special role in connecting youth to healthy food and nature through hands-on garden-based education.  We are currently looking for an individual with strong communication skills and a passion for teaching and inspiring children in the area of nature and gardening.  See our website for a complete description of the job opening.  Please, share this opportunity with anyone you think would make a great addition to the GROW Team.
Garden Volunteers Make a Difference

It takes a team to keep all seven school gardens watered, weeded and harvested over the summer.  You don’t need any gardening experience to volunteer with us.  In fact, we have volunteer orientations and weekly volunteer updates to help everyone of our volunteers feel prepared to help in the gardens.  

Whether you would like to help two or three times a summer or every week, we are happy to share our garden knowledge to gain your help over the growing season.  This is a great opportunity for busy families to try out gardening while giving back to the community.  

Go to our website to fill out the volunteer interest form.  This will ensure you get future volunteer communication.
