Looking to engage with our community in a meaningful way?

Help us to shop for items needed to provide delicious and nutritious snacks for all of our programs this season! We are looking for a volunteer to take over the snack shopping errands. They will work with our program director to go over items needed at snack time for each program, then shop from that list.

Hours are flexible and this can be done on your own time! You will receive a list each week and provide items by Tuesday morning each week.

Programming begins in May and runs through September - our busiest time will be throughout the summer. Hoping to have a volunteer committed by early May.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@lovelandyouthgardeners.org for more information.

Description

Youth Gardening Program - (May to September) Students grow their own gardens, are taught a gardening curriculum, attend field trips and hear guest speakers, give tours of the garden, operate a road side farm stand and donate pesticide-free produce to low-income residents of the community.

Leaf-Out - (nearly year-round) Students can move to this "next" level program where they further develop job, social & life skills by working in the community/production garden, process/sell produce to local venues, and volunteer in community service projects.

Enterprise Internship - (nearly year-round) Students can apply to move into the Enterprise Internship program where their focus is on developing a product using herbs and/or produce from the gardens, marketing/sales & managing a business.

Branch Out - (Year-round Outreach Program) Branch Out focuses on serving all youth (ages 3-21) in our community. Programming and activities can go "on the road" to serve young people where they learn, live, work, or can be hosted on-site at LYG.

Loveland Plant a Row for the Hungry - Loveland Youth Gardeners initiated Loveland PAR in 2005. To date, the large community network that makes up Loveland PAR has contributed nearly 195,000 lbs. of produce to needy families in our community.
