Edible Garden/Habitat Workday Opportunities:

We are thrilled to be partnering with local food relief organizations to donate fresh produce from our edible gardens to community members in need! We’re looking for volunteer support with harvesting, along with other garden tasks, including getting beds ready for planting, planting out seedlings, weeding, mulching, and other habitat and garden maintenance work. Volunteers are essential to keeping the gardens running efficiently!

Native Plant Nursery Workdays:

We’re looking for volunteer help in our native plant nursery, which collaborates with the California Native Plant Society. By volunteering in our native plant nursery, you will help us supply our community with native plant species vital for our local ecosystems. Tasks include watering, pruning, weeding, propagating, and more!

Volunteer opportunities are open to residents of Monterey County and surrounding areas who are age 15+. Volunteers will be oriented to our safety procedures and asked to sign a participant liability waiver at the beginning of their first shift. For those under 18, parents must complete a liability waiver for their child. We kindly ask volunteers not to attend shifts if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with anyone with COVID-19.
