Welcome to the 2021 Open Garden Volunteer Sign Up. Please note that each sign up slot is for one individual person. Face masks are still required at this time unless you have been vaccinated. Garden Volunteer Time is each Thursday during the growing season from 4:30-6:30pm. You are not obligated to arrive right at 4:30 and do not need to stay the entire time unless you would like to! No experience is required to volunteer and we are happy to provide the tools and training needed. Depending on the time of season, tasks may include planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, compost turning, produce cleaning and packaging.
In the event that there is severe weather or storms, please assume we will not have Garden Volunteer Time. Garden & Special Projects Coordinator, Amanda Vincent, will reach out via the email you provided on your signup slot to let you know of any cancellations. You may also check our Facebook page for cancellation updates or call the Pantry at 319-626-2711 if you are unsure.
