Support our Habitat & Organic Gardens as a Volunteer!
Volunteering at MEarth is a wonderful opportunity to learn valuable skills in gardening and native habitat development as you lend an hand to support our community and environmental stewardship efforts, make new friends, and get some exercise in the process!
We are rehabilitating our educational organic garden to become a production garden, capable of feeding our community! Food produced in the garden will be donated through the Monterey County Food Bank and the Carmel High School student group, This Club Saves Lives. We’re asking for the community’s help with our Organic Garden Rehabilitation Project, as we get beds ready for planting, plant out seedlings, and other garden maintenance work.
We’re also looking for support to help maintain MEarth’s 10-acre Hilton Bialek Habitat, home to a myriad of native plant species and abundant wildlife. Volunteers provide tremendous support in the maintenance of the habitat.
Volunteer opportunities are open to residents of Monterey County who are age 18+. Volunteers will be oriented to our safety procedures and asked to sign a participant liability waiver at the beginning of their first shift. We kindly ask volunteers not to attend shifts if they have experienced COVID-19 symptoms, or if they have been in close contact with anyone with COVID-19, and to let us know if they have travelled outside of Monterey County within the 14 days prior to their volunteer shift.
Habitat Workdays: Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10am – 2pm
