Volunteer Gardeners

Native Plant Garden Volunteer Days

Every first Friday of the month with a break over the summer.
Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm
Location: Laguna Environmental Center
Required Experience & Qualifications: No experience needed. Training is provided. Children are welcome but must be able to participate. Please supervise your child at all times.

Share your expertise and passion for gardening by helping our native plant garden thrive!

Volunteers are essential in beautifying our site! Activities include planting, weeding, pruning, spreading wood chips, and general site cleanup. We are also looking for several people with gardening experience to be the main stewards who will work closely with staff as needed, perform routine maintenance (perhaps even adopting an area), and serve as team leaders on scheduled public work days.

The Laguna Environmental Center's native plant landscape includes wildflowers, grasses, sedges, trees, forbes, and herbaceous plants. There are 14 heritage fruit trees around the farmhouse as well as a small vegetable garden to represent the period the farmhouse was constructed. The site also includes beautiful views, spots to have a picnic, a living willow tunnel in the Children's Playscape, a bridge over a swale, a pond planted with wetland plants, and an observation deck suitable for bird watching, photography, or just enjoying the quiet and the vistas.

Only heavy rain cancels. You can come once or multiple times. No RSVP is required, unless you are bringing a group of 4 or more people. Wear clothes that can get dirty. Snacks and tools are provided but please bring water, gloves and friends!
