Volunteer an hour (or more) a week to water Common Ground Garden. It provides you with peace and quiet, and--in return--we want to send you home with some fresh, organic veggies! For more information about Common Ground Garden, visit our website:

Right now we are especially looking for someone to come on Sundays! And we are looking to double up on waterers every other day, except Thursday.

During the dry monthswe need to double up on waterers so we have people for the morning and evening. Many of our crops wilt and suffer damage on hot days and need to be watered twice.

During the wet months, we need a backup list of volunteers to keep the garden watered, as our regular waterers often need to cancel for holidays, colds, flus. Also, we want to build up a list of people ready to water, come Spring time!

And, if you can only volunteer for a portion of that time, let us know! We can flex to what you need.
