SWHS Culinary Garden Volunteers

Master Gardener and Student Garden Hours

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!!
