Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are the heartbeat of Just Garden. From building gardens, to helping out behind the scenes, the work begins and ends at the grass roots of people power. All of our gardens have been built by volunteers and our programs couldn’t exist without you! Thank you so much for wanting to give your time and energy to help build a more vibrant and sustainable food system.
