  • 22 people are interested

We are currently seeking volunteers over the age of 16 to help with our plant pest management. Ideally, volunteers would be comfortable bending and stretching, carrying up to 5 pounds, and paying close attention to individual plants’ needs.

We will train volunteers on our pest management techniques (the only chemicals involved are dish soap and rubbing alcohol) and we can promise good music, good company, and great photo ops!

Please respond with your availability and notations for any special needs or circumstances.
