Do you have a green thumb? Would you like to use your love of gardening to help give back to the community? If so, St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County is the place for you. We are looking for individuals to assist us with our courtyard garden outside our free dining room at our downtown Oakland campus. Working in the garden has many benefits. It helps to increase a sense of community ownership and stewardship and brings people together from a wide variety of backgrounds (race, age, culture, social class).

You will work with our garden manager and other members of the community to maintain the planter boxes with fruit trees and vertical garden with herbs. Additional tasks include:

  • Watering grounds
  • Removal of weeds during growing season
  • Dig garden beds
  • Harvest fruits and herbs

Commitment: Ideally 1-2 times per week 30-60 minutes per visit.
