This is a Volunteer Opportunity For groups: Sign up to help beautify a space! Our gardens are located in our properties across the state, and can always benefit from some maintenance work, such as weeding and raking. We welcome groups who want to join together and make an impact with a larger project, such as building a raised bed, laying mulch, and large-scale garden renovations.
During our garden build events groups of volunteers work alongside our clients, we assemble 4x8' raised bed gardens, fill them with soil and compost, and plant vegetable plants and seeds. Volunteer training is provided on the day of the garden build, so no prior experience is necessary. Depending on the project, groups may be asked to help fundraise and purchase all needed supplies in order to complete the project.
- Must have excellent interpersonal skills, a positive personality and friendly demeanor.
- Some gardening experience is helpful, including knowledge of weeds, planting, and use of garden tools.
- Light construction experience is helpful: previous experience building with hammer and nails is useful.
This is a great team building opportunity! Volunteers will have the opportunity to work closely with their team members and potentially Eden residents. Volunteers will learn new skills and be empowered to beautify a space for a low-income community. Volunteers will also be able to see the direct, tangible impact of their efforts as project can be completed in one day.
Volunteer group must be available to complete the project. For gardening help (weeding and mulching):A group of 10-20 must commit to two to three hours. For garden builds: it can take about three-four hours. A volunteer group of 10-20 will build raised beds from lumber, install them, and prep the beds for planting. These are one-time, 3 hour, volunteer opportunity for a group. Supervision and tools will be provided. In some instances, sponsorship of may be needed for the purchase of materials.
