VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Role: Gardening volunteers
Organization: The GARDENS
Location: South Etobicoke, Toronto, Ontario (Mimico, New Toronto, Long Branch)

We need volunteers for our GARDENS Pod Project, located in South Etobicoke. This project is based on a gardening and partnership model of mobile raised gardens (PODS) built on underutilized community/business land. The produce harvested from the Pods returns to the community supporting the local food bank and other food programs.

We need volunteers to help us take care of our plants and in return, they will receive a portion of the harvest before it is donated to other programs in the community.

As a volunteer you will benefit by getting a chance to work with the earth and by making an important contribution to the community and environment.

No gardening experience is required to volunteer with us. We welcome everyone!

We are able to sign off on high school volunteer service hours and welcome students to apply!

Please see the locations of our pod site providers and let us know which site(s) you'd like to volunteer with.

Time commitment: average 2 hours per week

Volunteering tasks include:

  • Watering
  • Weeding
  • Harvest
  • Packaging of produce
  • Some light site maintenance (clearing garden debris from surrounding area)

We will provide you with any instruction required to help our plants succeed
