About

Groups are needed to help make a difference at one or more of Cleveland Botanical Garden's Green Corps Learning Farms. These urban farms not only offer their communities access to fresh fruits and vegetables, they also teach high school youth valuable skills.

Volunteer groups help us accomplish larger projects. This is a great opportunity for groups to come for a done-in-a-day project!

Group opportunities are available Tuesday - Friday, April through October. Groups typically come for 3 or more hours between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. We can have groups of 5 to 40 volunteers, although more than 15 volunteers will be split up between various farms. There are five Green Corps Learning Farms available, and farm assignment is based on greatest need. You can see the location of our farms and learn about the programs impact on Cleveland on our website:
