An Hour of Peace for a Bundle of Veggies

It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.

Volunteer an hour (or more) per 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 our watering slots are full, since we have a reduced need with the winter rains and cooler weather. As Spring arrives, and things dry out, we will be looking for new waterers to come on board. Please let us know if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

During the dry months, we 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!
