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.
Opportunities for Involvement
Do you have a hand to lend and want to help out at the Youth Garden Project?
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 and 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 Community Programs Coordinator 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!
