Volunteer Orientation, before Harvest Festival —
Saturday, Oct. 24, 11 a.m. – Noon
Volunteers keep the Garden open for our community. The more volunteers there are, the more hours the Garden can be open. Volunteering is flexible and simply involves welcoming visitors for just ONE hour at a time. Some volunteers volunteer each week, and other less frequently. Become a volunteer.
If you would like to volunteer but cannot make this time, please email email@example.com.
