Pop Up Program Assistants-Boston Community Gardens


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


365 Bremen StBoston, MA 02128


If exploring the beauty of Martha’s Vineyard is not in the cards for you this summer, you can still enjoy a little slice of Vineyard heaven when you’re in Boston. We have brought our magnificent Mytoi Garden a 14-acre Japanese-inspired landscape located on Chappaquiddick, to Boston in pop up form!

The pop up will be in East Boston @ the East Boston Branch of the Boston Public Library from August 24th-September 18th and on the Rose Kennedy Greenway from September 19th-October 2nd.

In addition to allowing Boston residents to explore on their own, we have lots of programs happening at the pop up and we need your help! Pop Up Program Assistants will work with staff to set up these programs, recruit participants, work with particpants, and clean up at the end of the program. If you like crafts, gardening, and/or the Trustees then this is the role for you!

We have both formal and drop in programs available-you are welcome to volunteer for whatever works with your schedule! If you like crafts, gardening,
