The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Oak Granary is an environmental education non-profit and intentional community located in Potter Valley, CA. Volunteers at the Oak Granary will have an opportunity to contribute to a number of projects and programs, including working in the education/research garden, tending native plants in the 300 acre wild land preserve, and working with youth and adult educational groups and classes. Volunteers will work along side experienced educators and mentors. We welcome volunteers of all ages and skill levels. Volunteers are typically needed most on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9 am to 3 pm. If you’re interested in learning about growing food in our Mediterranean climate, stewarding California’s abundant oak woodland, and teaching practical skills to engaged youth and adults, then volunteering at the Oak Granary is for you!
