Vacaville Garden Project

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Eden Housing, Inc.


This volunteer opportunity is for groups only!

Corporate or Community Groups can sign up for this opportunity to sponsor and complete a gardening project at one of our affordable housing sites in Vacaville, CA.

Our gardens are located on our properties and can always benefit from some maintenance work, such as weeding and raking. We welcome groups who want to join together and make an impact with a larger project, such as building a raised bed, laying mulch, and large-scale garden renovations.


Volunteers will weed, rake, and build raised beds, fill them with soil, and help to create a welcoming space for the seniors of Hillside Senior.

Skills needed:

  • Must have excellent interpersonal skills, a positive personality, and a friendly demeanor.
  • Some carpentry experience is helpful!
  • Some gardening experience is helpful, including knowledge of weeds, planting, and the use of garden tools.


This is a great team-building opportunity! Volunteers will have the chance to work closely with their team members and potentially Eden residents. Volunteers will learn new skills and be empowered to beautify a space for a low-income community. Volunteers will also be able to see the direct, tangible impact of their efforts as the project can be completed in one day.

Time commitment:

A volunteer group must be available to complete the project. For gardening help (weeding, mulching, planting): The group must commit to 3-4 hours.

About Eden Housing, Inc.

Mission Statement

Eden Housing creates and sustains high-quality affordable housing communities that advance equity and opportunity for all.


Eden Housing, Inc. is a California non-profit corporation founded in 1968 by six community activists who were concerned about the lack of non-discriminatory, affordable housing in Northern California. These volunteers began by rehabilitating older homes in Hayward for first time homebuyer families. In the mid-1980s, Eden Housing incorporated an affiliated property management company, Eden Housing Management, Inc. (EHMI), which currently provides quality onsite management and maintenance for more than 9,000 affordable homes throughout California. In the mid-1990's, Eden Housing expanded its scope to include the provision of free onsite support services and programs for its residents.Our services include technology programming; "green" resident education; youth academic, enrichment and recreation programs; programs for seniors and persons with disabilities; financial literacy; job/career preparation; and health and wellness programs for all ages.

Today, Eden has a portfolio of 9,000 units at 145 properties across 15 counties in California. Eden develops new construction and acquires and rehabilitates existing properties to preserve them. During the past 53 years, over 65,000 people have come home to an Eden Housing community. At Eden Housing, we have more than 20,000 households on our waiting list and a portfolio-wide vacancy rate of 1%, demonstrating a huge demand for our work.
