Garden for the Environment (GFE) is open to volunteers each Wednesday and Saturday. No prior gardening experience is necessary and all ages are welcome. Volunteers can come and go at any time, and GFE has gloves and any tools you might need. There is typically a break for lunch around noon – you are welcome to bring something to eat if you want to join.

Volunteers will work alongside staff and other volunteers on a variety of garden tasks like composting, planting seeds, pruning, weeding, and tending to vegetable beds. This work helps to care for the garden, but it’s also an opportunity for volunteers to learn new skills and develop their individual gardening interests with the guidance of expert staff.

GFE does not host volunteer hours in the event of heavy rain and on a few holidays. Check out their homepage or Instagram for updates!
