  • 118 people are interested

Join fellow gardeners working in the garden, ongoing, usually on weekends. This water conservation garden demonstrates native plants and uses no pesticides to provide wildlife habitat. We always are in need of an extra pair of hands to help with pruning, chipping, weeding, composting, mulching, raking, and other garden maintenance.

We also need someone who can stop by the garden during the week to observe and record both wildlife activity and human activity, taking photographs and keep a log for us, which we’ll use for our web site, blog and Facebook.

About Pleasant Hill Instructional Garden



Mission Statement

The mission of the Pleasant Hill Instructional Garden
is to educate students, staff, and community members on the need for water conservation
and to promote wildlife habitat with a demonstration garden using mulch, drought-tolerant and native plantings and without pesticide use.


Our vision is to build PHIG into a community recognized resource with a water conservation demonstration garden. A community eyesore is being transformed into a natural and beautiful wildlife habitat that attracts birds, beneficial insects, butterflies, and other pollinators.

Begun in 2007, PHIG provides a living laboratory for all students and specifically for students at the Pleasant Hill Education Center and Contra Costa County Master Gardeners. PHIG uses no pesticides that degrade our water quality and is also simply a place to sit and enjoy nature.

Community service and garden work parties help to maintain, renew and develop the garden. Join us in the garden or help us in other ways!


We'll work with your schedule.
