Volunteer Opportunities and Orientations
Volunteers are the vitality and future of the Somerville Community Growing Center. The Friends of the Community Growing Center thank you for considering a contribution of your time and talents!
The Growing Center is not a community garden in the traditional sense. We follow a different model. There are no plots assigned to individuals for their own use; we have gardening space, which volunteers tend. The majority of the produce is donated to local food pantries to help give everyone in our community a chance to eat fresh and local.
The Growing Center offers many flexible and relaxing opportunities to volunteer time and skills, both outdoors and indoors, even if your schedule is unpredictable! Some are ongoing and open to everyone, and others are best suited for volunteers who have attended one of our volunteer orientations.
We use our newsletter to announce general, all-inclusive volunteer opportunities, as well as upcoming free programming events, and volunteer orientations. To sign up, go here.
