This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.

About

Get outside! Join our Community Lot Team as they transform abandoned lots into beautiful community gardens and green spaces. Volunteers are needed to help with gardening and landscape work. Tasks may include picking up litter, cutting down weeds, installing walkways, creating garden beds, and planting trees. Research suggests that cleaning neglected lots not only improves the appearance of the area, it also makes the neighborhood safer and healthier. No experience is necessary to volunteer with us. All work is outdoors, and most work is physically demanding. Due to safety issues on some of our lots, volunteers must be 14+.

  • Groups are welcome to schedule service days Tuesday-Saturday, for 3 or 4 hours between 9am and 4pm. Apply here or email volunteer@civicworks.com
  • Individual volunteers can join us whenever we have groups scheduled for service days, and on weekly Wednesday Open Volunteer Days. These events are posted on Civic Works' Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Community-Lot-Team-256938944374569/) and the Civic Works online Calendar. Email volunteer@civicworks.com with any questions.
