Do you love working in your yard? Are you proud of your home garden? Or are you interested in cultivating a green thumb? Well, roll up your sleeves, this could be for you! Volunteer with the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens as a Community Garden Campus Volunteer. Volunteers serve outdoors in all weather conditions, assisting horticulture staff with weeding, planting, pruning, leaf removal, and other garden maintenance tasks. Help fight hunger by assisting with harvesting from garden beds, part of the harvested food is donated to local food pantries.
To volunteer as a Community Garden Campus Volunteer, join the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) a volunteer program exclusive to Ohio residents in Franklin County ages 55 years and older. We match volunteers ages 55+ with nonprofits in their community that either need or rely on volunteers to be able to provide their services. Funded through the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and part of AmeriCorps Seniors, VANTAGE Aging’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 years and over. We partner with nonprofit agencies to match these older adults to their volunteer opportunities. RSVP projects link the skills of the volunteers with the identified needs of the community. We think of ourselves as the 'center hub' for our volunteers looking for opportunities. We offer many wonderful incentives and perks to our team of RSVP volunteers, this program is free and so rewarding to be a part of.
