Coordinate Gardening Pairs

Keep track of people who volunteer to offer gardening expertise, and who would like to receive it. Match up and connect experts and novices.

 

Offer Gardening Expertise

If you're an experienced gardener, offer your tips and expertise to novice gardeners. You can decide how you'd like to be contacted, and how frequently.

I can help extreme beginners!

Receive Gardening Expertise

Are you a novice gardener who could benefit from tips and feedback from an experienced gardener? Sign up to be paired with a gardener who can help you establish your own garden (of whatever size!)

 

Explore Community Gardening Options (2)

A co-op member brainstormed that we could use a community garden (e.g. at The Hooper) to grow fresh food for food shelves. A volunteer (or small team) can explore options for doing this, and help organize this project.

Facilitate a Foodie Book Club

We have some interest in a co-op foodie book club. This volunteer would schedule virtual book club meetings (we will provide Zoom link) and remind participants of the event. They can lightly facilitate the meeting by posing a few questions.

I would like to join this, not necessarily facilitate it.

Staff Summer Farmers' Market (4)

We're looking into hosting a Farmers' Market at the Co-op's site next to The Hungry Diner. Once details are confirmed, we will need volunteers for tasks such as setting up signs and hand sanitizer, directing cars, facilitating flow of foot traffic, etc.

Happy to help !

Table for the Co-op at Farmers' Markets (4)

We're looking into hosting a Farmers' Market at the Co-op's site next to The Hungry Diner. We would like volunteers to staff a table for the GRC. We can provide masks, and market participants will follow social distancing guidelines. Schedule TBD.

 

Join Farmer Outreach Committee (2)

The Co-op takes seriously its mission to support local farmers and producers. An important component of that is communication with farmers to get feedback and learn their needs and preferences. Join the Farmer Outreach Committee to help facilitate this.

 

Create a "Support Local" Bingo Challenge

Design and make a bingo challenge that encourages people to support local producers. You can take inspiration from other co-ops' bingos. Ideas can be: planted a veggie start, ordered local take-out, donated to a food shelf, bought local honey, etc.
