Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To create and support accessible community gardens with Tucsonans of diverse experience levels, abilities and cultures in order to educate, foster wellness, and enhance the environment for people, plants, and pollinators.
A community garden is a place where neighbors can grow flowers or vegetables together on one piece of land. The land is usually lent to us by a church, school or private land owner, at no charge, for use as a garden space. Separate garden plots, usually measuring about 3′ x 20′, are made available to individuals and families in the neighborhood. A drip irrigation system is installed to supply water to the plants.
The community garden can also become a focal point for gardening activities in the neighborhood. A monthly meeting gives each gardener a chance to learn more about their plants by working directly with a local gardening expert. A monthly or bimonthly newsletter also provides gardening tips and keeps everyone informed of activities at the other gardens in the city.
