71 people are interested
Saturdays 9:00am-12:00pm, March through October
The Gateway Greening Demonstration Garden and Carriage House is an important piece of support Gateway Greening offers the 200+ community, youth and school garden projects in our network. These facilities total 0.75 acres and are where Gateway Greening holds classes, builds garden award materials, has tool loans, seed, and plant sales, and is where we demonstrate keeping urban chickens, composting and gardening techniques including vegetables, naturescaping and ornamental plantings. Gateway Greening staff and volunteers maintain 20 demonstration beds that are used to illustrate various vegetable growing techniques. Volunteers gain experience in garden maintenance and interact with St. Louis Master Gardeners and Gateway Greening staff who are on the cutting edge of gardening practices.
Volunteers must first attend a Volunteer Orientation. The 2019 orientation schedule for the Demonstration Garden is below. All orientations are 10:00-11:00 am. Contact Megan Moncure at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for an orientation.
Once they attend the orientation they are welcome to stay and volunteer on that day and return on Saturday mornings until the end of the growing season. The Demonstration Garden will be open in 2019 on all Saturday mornings March 2 through November 2.
Groups can also contact the Volunteer Manager to schedule a date to volunteer.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
