Garden Volunteer Opportunities in VEG

Save to Favorites


Verner Center for Early Learning is looking for volunteers to work in our Experiential Garden at North Carolina Outward Bound (VEG!) The garden is conveniently located at our center on Riceville Road. At the beginning of the pandemic, we developed an even more pressing need for an outdoor classroom. Thanks to amazing volunteers, this space has transformed into a magical area for outdoor play, loose parts, and sensory experiences.

A garden requires a lot of upkeep, even over winter! We are looking for people who are interested in landscaping, gardening, carpentry, and art! We currently have two volunteer shifts during the week--Tuesdays from 11:00-1:00 and Fridays from 1:00-3:00. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please contact Polly Phillips at
