As you may know, our nursery operates and thrives thanks to all our amazing volunteers. We are always welcoming
and encouraging new people to come by and join the team! Here are a few things volunteers have been working on and also things we’d love more help with:
- Dry brushing pots. We’ve been able to solarize so many pots in order to sanitize them and we are thankful to those who have spent countless hours brushing the dirty pots.
- Potting up plants
- Watering! We always need people to water the plants, especially during the summer. Please let us know if you’d like to water weekly or even be a substitute for our regulars.
- Weeding and tending to the areas around the nursery.
Volunteering is a great opportunity to connect with others that love the outdoors and all the native plants within our communities. Charli and Jon are a dynamic duo that facilitate an amazing environment to learn and grow. Please let us know if you have any questions about getting involved and feel free to stop by anytime during our open hours!
