LGL Volunteer Information
Volunteering at LGL
The Learning Gardens Laboratory could not function without the dedication and participation of our partners. Indeed, collaborative effort, volunteerism and dialogue are the backbone of LGL’s historical, current and future progress. In a time when financial resources are scarce and the primary needs of our community grow, we can model sustainable partnerships as well as sustainability education, sustainable agriculture, and best environmental practices. The spirit of cooperation and service is what makes LGL tick.
Interested in volunteering at LGL? We’d love to have you!
Before serving, our volunteers are required to attend a volunteer orientation. The purpose of the orientation is two-fold: first, we want to get to know you, and develop an understanding of why you’ve decided to join us in our efforts so that we can make your time here meaningful, productive, and informative. Second, LGL is a big place with a lot going on. You will be given a tour and educated on our best-practice protocols. These include things like where tools are kept and stored, how to clean them, gardening practices, communicating with volunteer leaders, and much more.
