CitySprouts uses volunteering as a way to bring the school community, families, and community members together to create vibrant learning gardens for children. Through volunteering, CitySprouts invites individuals and groups to help create a world where every child grows up with a garden to explore and learn in. Volunteers contribute to our mission at all skill levels, in the gardens, at the office, or elsewhere.
From waking up the school gardens in the spring to helping children press apple cider in the fall, CitySprouts relies on volunteers who are willing to lend a hand. If you would like to receive updates on volunteer opportunities please send a note to Andrea, email@example.com or fill out our volunteer form below.
We gladly organize projects at one or more of our sites for our corporate sponsors. We recognize that hosting a group in the garden gives our corporate partners a chance to see the impact of their sponsorship, and we appreciate the positive difference their volunteer contribution makes. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about volunteer opportunities for our corporate sponsors.
“One of the goals of STAGs Charitable Action Committee is to support nonprofit organizations that empower children. We dedicate time and resources to CitySprouts because their garden programs create fun environments that promote children’s learning, health, and engagement. CitySprouts extensive research, in the area of garden-based learning, enables the organization to position itself for continued growth and impact in the community.”
– Harry Bramhall, STAG Industrial

CitySprouts relies on the help of skilled gardener volunteers to help keep our partner schools’ gardens growing and thriving through the summer months. The Garden Volunteer commits to caring for a specific garden during some or all of the summer, communicating with CitySprouts Volunteer Coordinator the beginning and end dates for which they will be responsible, and any vacation or travel time for which the Volunteer Coordinator will need to secure other coverage.
