About

We're a small (6 full time staff) nonprofit that in the last three years has created one of the largest school garden programs in the United States (in Las Vegas). We help schools fund, build and run school garden programs so that students can better learn about science (STEM), nutrition, and conservation. We're looking for volunteers on any Saturday during the months of March, April, May and June to help us build school gardens. We could also use volunteers on Thursdays during these same months. All of the equipment and expertise will be supplied--we just need people to help wheelbarrow soil and gravel, put into place the inter-locking bricks, spread gravel, etc. Typically, a build is from 9:00 AM to around 1:00 PM--but any time you can donate would be greatly appreciated!

Just let us know your availablilty for any of the following dates:

March 16th (Thurs)

March 18th (Sat)

March 23rd (Thurs)

March 25th (Sat)

March 30th (Thurs)

April 20th (Thursday)

April 22nd (Saturday)

April 27th (Thursday)

April 29th (Saturday)

May 11th (Thursday)

May 13th (Saturday)

Once you let us know a date, then we'll let you know where the school is along with contact info.
