Volunteer Training Event

All gardens benefit from watchful, caring gardeners.  Our inspiration gardens are no exception.  When I visited all of them recently, I was reminded that the more caretakers each of our gardens has, the more it will flourish and provide a great experience for everyone.   It is in this spirit that we have created a program to help volunteers grow their urban agriculture skills in order to support our gardens and the people that live with them everyday.

Everybody Grows  is happy to announce we will be holding a volunteer training event to brief both experienced and new volunteers on the skills and routines we use to maintain our inspiration gardens.  We will go over harvesting, transplanting, and pruning techniques in order to prepare volunteers to work in our gardens.   The event will be Sunday July 12th at 2 PM at Engine 26, 1340 Rhode Island Ave, NE.

Please email jake@everybodygrows.org to RSVP if you will be attending.  We will keep you updated on future volunteer training events through our website and social media.

The program will begin July 8th and take place every Wednesday through August 17th.  We will offer five hours of volunteering and learning opportunities each Wednesday, with the option to work more on other days.  Minimum age to apply is 15.

Thanks again for your interest.  We are happy to answer questions about the program.  This will be our first year doing this, so we reserve the right to modify the program above, but trust that it will be a priority to provide a meaningful experience for each participant.
