About

Casa Libre/Freedom House is looking for someone with experience in yardwork/landscaping/gardening. We want a volunteer lead gardener to direct residents in weekly Saturday/Sunday yard maintenance projects/lessons.

Our main concern is in teaching the residents good yard maintenance habits and having consistent upkeep for the property. We have a lot of space for gardening as well as a greenhouse -- if you are experienced and wish to engage in a more elaborate project of growing vegetables and landscaping this is also something we could consider, but only if you have the experience to manage an effort of this magnitude. Hours are flexible but we really stress consistency. However much you can donate is great as long as your schedule is reliable an consistent, wether it's a few hours every week or every other week.

The Casa Libre/Freedom Home is a project of the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law, Inc. It is a licensed emergency and long-term 14-bed shelter for minors under the age of 18 without homes, including unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children.

The Center is a non-profit, public interest legal foundation dedicated to furthering and protecting the civil, constitutional, and human rights of immigrants, refugees, children, prisoners, and the poor.
