2019 Plantmobile - Children's Outreach

Help cultivate the next generation of gardeners and ecologists! Mass Hort Plantmobile volunteers work with kids to help them explore the plant world through activities at The Gardens at Elm Bank, at schools, and at community events. No experience necessary - we provide on-site orientation and training.

How can you help?

1. Sign up for a shift below. You will receive email reminders and notifications about your shift. As a courtesy to staff and others that may wish to sign up, please notify us (through Sign Up Genius or by phone) of any cancellations 24 hours prior to your shift.

2. Complete the Application and Release Form attached below and return it to [email protected] or mail it in to the address on the form.

3. Prior to your volunteer shift, our education department will be in touch with event details. You will need to complete and return a CORI form (criminal record check) for Mass Hort prior to volunteering. 

5. Have fun! Thank you for giving your time to support our mission!
