Work Parties

Please note that work parties and other volunteer opportunities that appear on this page are for NSCGS members only.

All members of the NSCGS are required to contribute 12 volunteer hours annually to the Society, either through direct work on your Community Garden or work at another Community Garden in the Society (e.g., weeding common areas, work parties, compost, educational events).  Working on your own plot does not count towards volunteer hours. You are responsible for tracking your hours/activities and providing this information to the Coordinator(s).  Failure to contribute the required volunteer hours may result in the loss of your plot at the end of the gardening season.

A listing of work parties and other volunteer opportunities is below.

When gardeners arrive, please check in with Natalie, Yahya or Maedeh QM garden coordinators for assignments.  Gardeners at QM may already be assigned a task.
