garden maintenance

We have lots of opportunities for those interested in gardening!  There are a variety of different gardens located at our parks, including:

Duties & Responsibilities:

Typical tasks may include pulling weeds, pruning, dead-heading, harvesting, carrying loads to dumpsters, and site preparation and clean up.  You will also need to track and regularly submit your volunteer hours to the Volunteer Program Coordinator. 

All garden volunteers will meet with the Volunteer Program Coordinator and learn about approved tasks, proper pruning techniques, and safety standards. 


Time Commitment:

Flexible date and time that works best for the volunteers. Typically 2-4 hour shifts. 


Parks that contain these features.   

Minimum Age:

Any age welcome, age 13 and under with a guardian. If you are under the age of 18 you will need to fill out a Minor Consent Form which can be obtained through the Volunteer Program Coordinator or on-line.

Application required: Yes, unless volunteering at a pre-planned group event.

Background check required: Yes, unless volunteering at a pre-planned group event. 


This is great opportunity to get outside, beautify parks, trails and greenspaces, meet new people, and have fun.
