About

Have a green thumb? We need your help!

We are looking for volunteer gardeners to maintain beds at a women's shelter this coming summer. The shelter is an emergency housing shelter for women and children, usually in domestic violence situations. The shelter provides food and shelter, and acts as a supportive transitional living center, assisting the residents in job and housing placement. Additionally, they have workshops for the residents to learn special skills.

This is where we come in! Since receiving grant approval, MASA will be installing a raised-bed garden and water barrel for the shelter. Our workshops are related to gardening, health, and food. We're looking volunteers to maintain the garden once a week between workshops. We'll schedule 2 people per week -- feel free to bring a buddy, or we'll match you with someone else for that week's schedule. During the visit we would ask volunteers to weed, water, address any concerns with the garden, and offer overall basic maintenance.

Volunteers must be:

  • Able to self-transport to women's shelter.
  • Reliable, with a consistent schedule.
  • Able to pass background check.
