We are looking for nature lovers!

Alongside our community leaders, incredible volunteers, and garden experts you can help us build garden beds, prepare the soil, maintain plants and beautify a school-centered community.

Our mission is to build an innovative and water-friendly way of growing food that utilizes a combination of growing methods perfect for desert agriculture - and we need help! We are looking for volunteers to immediately begin helping with our garden development, and once complete we will need help in maintaining and training community members on garden practices. This could be a one-time volunteer event, or an ongoing, long-term volunteer position, depending on your preferences.

This initiative will help improve food access in our Title I school community by providing people with education on how to grow, prepare, and eat healthy fruits and vegetables while giving them the resources to do so!

There's no previous experience or knowledge needed. We will provide all education, equipment, and supplies. All you need is appropriate shoes, a readiness to connect with nature, and a desire to learn and help.

Garden volunteer days typically occur on weekend mornings, and to ensure social distancing we are limiting the number of volunteers able to attend. We provide masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and water bottles.

Mission Statement

In pursuit of evidence-based models, we work in and around Creighton neighborhoods and schools to cultivate a sense of school-centered identity, foster neighbor interaction, and increase social capacity with the aim of improving relational community supports that surround our developing children.

Description

While we focus broadly on developing school capacity and providing access to new resources for our Title I schools, our primary work is Community Works. Community Works is all about neighborhood reinvestment based on a model of relocation and in-the-streets work in our neighborhoods of most significant need.


Our goal? A neighborhood-wide improvement in social interaction and supportive relationships and expectations for kids. The same supportive relationships that leading researchers say have a fundamental influence on the trajectory of child development.
