Join us for our monthly volunteer days to give our model sites some love! Our water-wise demonstration gardens and food forests in Petaluma, Sebastopol, Windsor, and Cotati can only do their job of inspiring change when they are well maintained. These intimate programs offer the chance to get to know neighbors and staff more closely, learn the hidden secrets of each garden, and soak up the seasons.
We’ll get our hands in the soil with easy garden maintenance like weeding, mulching, dead heading and planting. We’ll also provide deeper dives into seasonal tasks about rainwater catchment, fruit tree pruning and medicine making among other things. And last but not least, each program will spend a little time highlighting one of our favorite plants and everything we know about them! We hope you will come grow the community around these special gardens, a few hours at a time.
