Gardening Season is Here! Help Seniors with their Yards

Save to Favorites



As seniors try to stay in their homes longer, yard work is often one of the first tasks that become very difficult for a senior to keep up with. This can cause fines from the city or HOA, bad feelings with neighbors who might not want to see their unsightly yards- neighbors a senior might have to rely on in an emergency, and a lessening of quality of life.
Maybe you've moved from a house with a yard to an apartment? Or maybe you just want to volunteer outside and get a bit of physical activity while helping out a neighbor?
Cultivate's Yardbusters program is designed to work with individual volunteers, families and groups.
This volunteer opportunity is located throughout Boulder County.

Mission Statement

Cultivate helps seniors flourish through active engagement with their community.


For 50 years, Cultivate has dedicated itself to helping seniors flourish through active engagement with their communities. Volunteers can work directly with seniors or in other program support positions. Some people volunteer for one day; others sign on for years. Volunteers are always welcome! Our volunteers support our senior neighbors through the following programs:

Carry-Out Caravan - Grocery order-taking, shopping and delivery
Fix-It - Minor home repair including grab bar installation
VetsGo - Transportation for senior veterans and their senior family members to their medical appointments
SnowBusters - Snow shoveling in winter to help prevent falls and municipal citations
YardBusters - Yard cleanup to help prevent falls and municipal citations.

By providing services at no cost, Cultivate helps seniors remain independent, yet connected, within their communities. Beyond the medical rides, groceries or other services, Cultivate volunteers provide something even more transformational - reprieve from isolation. Both clients and volunteers benefit from the socialization with one another, and family members enjoy peace of mind, knowing that their loved ones are receiving much needed services from caring members of the community.
