Volunteer Opportunities!

At the Youth Garden Project, we are committed to growing organic fruits and veggies and connecting the community to the growing process from seed to table. You can help us achieve this goal by volunteering! We welcome community members and visitors of all ages to get involved at the YGP. Volunteers are crucial to our organization. Learn more about how you can be involved below.

Tuesday Morning Harvest

7am-12pm May-October (harvesting and washing produce for our CSA and produce stand) – Must sign up/contact YGP ahead of time.

Youth Volunteer Crew

Grand County students ages 12-18 are encouraged to participate in our Youth Volunteer Crew, a trimester-based after-school service opportunity! Check our calendar for upcoming info sessions.

Weed 'n' Feed

Every other Wednesday evening come weed and we will cook a delicious meal for you in return! 6-8pm (see here for more info) – No RSVP needed.

Family Volunteering

Get involved at YGP with your whole family! We are happy to provide additional opportunities besides Weed ‘n’ Feed for families to volunteer at the garden together. Give us a call to set something up.

Regular Commitment

We welcome volunteers who can commit volunteering during times that fall outside of these hours! Please contact us for more information.

One Time Events

One time events or volunteer opportunities (including Garden Dinners, Harvest Festival, jamming and preserving, among many others! – some of these events happen on evenings and weekends)

Court Ordered Community Service

We are happy to provide a space for those needing to complete their mandatory hours. Please give us a call to arrange.

Service Groups

YGP loves working with service groups from near and far! Please fill out our short Group Volunteer Application, and we will get back to you ASAP about your service group experience at the garden!

Our volunteers contribute vitally to many aspects of YGP’s daily functions. Whether you want to help out one time, every once in a while, or can commit to a regular schedule, we want to hear from you! The nature of our work is seasonal, so each week something new and exciting is going on.

Please fill out the volunteer sign-up form below or reach out with any questions. In order to ensure that volunteers receive meaningful work, it is important that you contact us before volunteering. Email our Outreach & Development Coordinator at jessie@youthgardenproject.org or call 435-259-2326.

We do much more than farm work and there is a place for everyone on our volunteer team. We are more than happy to discuss how our collaboration can meet both of our needs!
