Would you recommend Farmer Frog?

by danielle b. (January 20, 2016)
Some people look at me like I'm selfless for volunteering with Farmer Frog as often as I do, but the truth is, its actually kind of selfish; working in the gardens is basically free therapy for me. I get to go out into local nature, lose myself in a garden task, and chat with all different kinds of people whilst doing so. The people here-- volunteers, teachers, and students-- all welcomed me immediately with genuinely warm support. One of the things I love about Farmer Frog is that it not only teaches students, but also teaches volunteers of any gardening experience a TON of hands-on skills and information, while making it easy for anyone to get involved. Plus you get to help the students learn and get engaged with science and art in ways they just don't in the traditional classroom. I love this program, and I hope to volunteer with Farmer Frog for years to come.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
