Working in the community garden
Come help us maintain our community garden near San Diego State University

Volunteers are periodically needed to help maintain a large, well established, non-profit organic community garden which is located on private property adjacent to San Diego State University. We are NOT owned or operated by SDSU, but are an independent organization that coordinates with SDSU in many areas.
Help is needed during our bi-monthly "Work Parties" on specific and pre-announced dates, held throughout the year, typically on Saturdays, but we can sometimes hold them on certain Sundays.
You'll work with others in small supervised groups helping us maintain the grounds by spreading mulch, weeding, moving materials, performing basic repairs, general clean-up, helping with special projects, etc.

For additional information and to find the date of our next work party visit our website: and click on "Events"; visit us on Facebook: College Area Community Garden; or contact us by sending a message showing your interest.

Note: all potential volunteers need to register with the garden BEFORE arriving, as the garden is on private land and entrance is by prior registration and approval only. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting you.
