Volunteering Days

JUNE THROUGH AUGUST
Sign up for 3 or more days to help with the school garden.  We will send an email close to your volunteer date with directions.  You will check the TASK BOARD at the gardens to see how you can help that day!  Most days you will be asked to water and weed the gardens.  Volunteers are welcome to harvest vegetables to take home too!

Intern for us!

Each season (spring, summer and fall) we work with Garden Education Interns and Marketing Interns.

We appreciate interns for the help they bring to our organization.  In return for their hard work, interns are able to gain experience in school nutrition and gardening.   Garden Education interns help teach children, maintain gardens and coordinate volunteers.  They typically spend 80-90 hours during the summer or semester on the internship.  Some of the time is done during the school day and other can be done at a time best suited for the intern.

Marketing interns help market and communicate our programs through our website, blog, social media, newsletters and more.

If you are interested in any of the opportunities, please contact Kristy at kristy@growlacrosse.org
