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, please read the volunteer handbook. If you are new to LGL you will be given a tour, introduced to staff and other volunteers, 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.
