This is a seasonal, once per week commitment from late March - October. You will be in charge of planting and maintaining 4-6 gardens and guiding other volunteers, with support from Jovial Garden staff.

Educational gardening and learning opportunities will be made available to all garden leaders.

Garden leaders are expected to do this work every Saturday morning for approximately 4 hours. There is some flexibility with the schedule but we are looking for leaders who can consistently commit to this day and time. Paid leaders can expect to make about $300/month.
