Lead a Gardening Class

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: PATH (People Assisting the Homeless)



It's summertime and PATH San Diego is in need of a volunteer to help lead their weekly gardening class all summer long. Spend the afternoon out in the sun as you tend to the garden, water and weed the plants, and pursue different gardening projects with their clients.

Leading this class will help their clients get involved in taking care of their rooftop community garden. Gardening and horticultural therapy can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression and are a great way for their permanent supportive housing residents to grow their own herbs, fruits, vegetables and flowers.
