Volunteering with Garbage to Garden

Any time a Garbage to Garden participant volunteers with us or one of our community partners, that participant is eligible to receive a free month of service. There is no limit to the number of times you can volunteer - in fact, some of our participants earn completely free service by volunteering just a few hours each month! Once you have completed volunteer hours, just email with proof of your hours to receive credit!
We are actively seeking new volunteer partners in the Waterville area. If you know of an organization that is in need of volunteers... Let us know!
