Garden Mentors Needed

Everything we do here at GFGH, we do with the help of volunteers. From teaching lessons at area elementary schools to building a greenhouse at the Clinton County Youth Council, we depend on volunteers to serve our community.

At this time, we are seeking dedicated members of the community to volunteer as mentors at the Friends of Hope Community Gardens. We invite avid gardeners and patient hobbyists alike to lend a hand with some of our garden families, many of whom just need a little encouragement and direction in order to become self-sufficient gardeners themselves.

Volunteer mentors are needed to attend Community Garden sessions for no more than two hours on either Tuesday evenings or Saturday mornings beginning in mid-May (the first garden session dates are yet to be determined). We have 40 plots at the community garden and would like to have a mentor for each participating family though some mentors may be asked to help more than one family if they are able.
