Garbage to Garden


Happy Spring, Waterville!

Spring has sprung, and what better way to get outside and into your community than volunteering! Volunteer for 2+ hours with Garbage to Garden or one of the organizations below to earn a month of free GTG service! Below you can find a list of new and ongoing volunteer opportunities for the month of April.

We are actively seeking new volunteer partners --- are you or anyone you know involved with an organization that would be interested in hosting GTG participants to volunteer in exchange for free composting service? Let us know!

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. Events are first come, first served. 

Happy Composting,
The Garbage to Garden Team
