We have a variety of ways you can be involved with activities at Living Earth Center.  Examples include, but are not limited to, working in the gardens and helping plan upcoming classes or events.  We could not operate without our volunteers and are grateful for your contribution.  Living Earth Center flourishes with the assistance of committed volunteers who believe in its mission and growth.

Top 3 Reasons to Volunteer:

  1. You are giving back to an organization that really counts on you! No matter how big or little the task, it matters to the long term sustainability of the organization.
  2. It’s fun! We have many different ways that you can give your time that fit with your schedule and personal abilities. You can meet new and interesting people while learning and growing on your own.
  3. You are contributing to the resilience of our local community and the greater Earth community. Organizations like Living Earth Center matter to the future. In order to continue to do important work, we need help to develop the swell that creates systemic change. You are important to bringing about positive change and healthy growth in our world!

Ways to Volunteer

Garden and Farm Assistance
We are always looking for volunteers to help pull weeds, water gardens, clean the barn, harvest produce and deliver it to our partner organizations or help a gardener out who is in need.

Corporate Volunteer Days
Looking for a way for your office or business team to give back to the local community? We would love to have your team come out for a day at the community garden or farm to prep garden plots, weed, water, or work on pathways this is a great way for the team to get outside and bond together. 

Office and Library Assistance
We have a great resource library that is in need of volunteers to help check out and reshelf books, label new books and help with general office assistance.

Event Assistance
Putting on our programs and events takes a lot of work! We are always looking for people to help set up before an event, check people in during the event, and help clean up after the event.
