Garbage to Garden
Greetings, Volunteers!

Despite the wet weather we've had a busy summer of events so far and it isn't over yet! Scroll through the list of opportunities to volunteer with us in the next month or so.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic we've been flexible about volunteer opportunities carrying over month to month. Going forward we are making some adjustments to the opportunities and organizations included – especially as we have greater need for volunteers at our farm site and at events. Please make sure you choose a current opportunity highlighted in our newsletter each month in order to receive credit. Also a friendly reminder that any additional hours volunteered beyond the required 2 hours still count towards the one month of credit. 

To sign up for an event this month and receive a month of free Garbage to Garden service, RSVP by email and we will help answer any questions you may have. Then simply send confirmation of your volunteer hours to volunteer@garbagetogarden.org to receive credit.

Happy Composting,
