Master Gardener and Student Garden Hours

Master Gardeners and Students:  We will not be posting dates and signup hours for the winter months of December and January.  Note though we will be meeting with students in their classroom on January 17, 10:45-12:20.  We will resume signups in February 2020.  Thank you.  


Students (and SWHS Parents): To volunteer in the garden, please find a shift already staffed by a Master Gardener volunteer. It's the student's responsibility to document any requirement for community service hours, and MGs will happily provide signatures when needed. Please scroll down and re-read any instructions about current garden requirements before signing up. These may be updated according to the season/garden needs. Thanks!!  **Up to three students/parents per shift unless otherwise arranged** 

Master Gardeners: Please select a shift. After an MG commits to an available time, then students (or parents) may sign up for corresponding shift times. Please also scroll down and re-read any instructions about current garden needs. These may be updated according to the season. Thanks!!

Instructions + Current Garden Needs (Special instructions:  Please ask a Master Gardener before adding to the compost bin! )

  • Weeding
  • Add soil and/or mulch to bins with low soil levels 
  • Aerate active compost corral by turning; incorporate fresh material
  • Chop or crush plant material to be added to compost
  • Segregate and/or screen finished compost
  • Plant seeds and starts (as available)

Watering Instructions:   The hose is on a cart located next to the classroom door by the water connection. The water control key and spray wand are in the right hand locker  When rewinding the hose, first make sure the water is drained out of it and then align the hose neatly as you rewind it onto the cart. 

Master Gardeners: Please note the following preliminary schedule for class times we will have with culinary students during the next school year.  Please add all dates to your personal calendars so that you will be available on these dates to join us with the students in the classroom and/or the garden.  We will add these dates to our Signup Genius calendar 2-3 months at a time so that you may sign up when you can be involved and participate in these activities.  Most of the dates are Fridays with a couple of Wednesdays.
