Help Keep the Garden Growing: Help an Older Adult with Yardwork

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Village in the Ville

Volunteer with Village in the Ville to help older adults in the Clintonville, Beechwold, and University Districts with their yardwork.


Village in the Ville offers yard and lawn care services to older adults in our community so that they can continue to age-in-place - that is, in their home and our community - for as long as possible. We do this by connecting older adults in need of yard help to in-the-know volunteers, like you, who can help them maintain their yard and lawn. So, if you're someone who enjoys gardening, planting flowers, and the spending time outdoors, all while helping to make a difference in your community, then this volunteer opportunity is for you!



By sharing your green thumb, you're helping to ensure that our aging neighbors can continue to age in their homes and our community for as long as possible. Not only will you get the satisfaction of knowing you made this difference, you'll also get the satisfaction of friendship, as you'll have the opportunity to get to know those who you're helping!


Volunteers may sign up individually or as a small group. Once volunteers sign up, an email with the address of an older adult that needs lawn or yard care and an outline of tasks will be sent. Tasks may include weeding, raking, moving patio furniture or other large items, clearing yard waste, and other similar tasks. Timing is flexible, but volunteers should plan to set aside 2-3 hours for volunteering. Prior to the volunteer date, Village staff will make sure all tools and necessary yard waste bags are at the older adult's home.
