Children's Garden Educators Needed!


We still need your help and are looking for new volunteers:

During the Spring, Summer, and Fall of 2012; the Danny Woo Community Garden will be hosting a variety of seed-to-plate garden education classes for youth from the ages of 4-17. We are looking for volunteers to teach kids and young adults about the process of life that begins with a seed and continues to our dinner plates. Help pass on the knowledge of our elder gardeners to the youth in their community. The class times and dates vary, so please contact us to find one that may fit your schedule. Volunteering may be as little as 2 hours every-other week or as much as multiple 2 hour classes per week. This is a great way to build your experience with garden, environmental, or outdoor education!

Qualifications:

-Basic understanding of organic gardening or the willingness to learn

-Ability to make a consistent time commitment to the class for which you choose to volunteer

-Second language skills a plus but not required
