Please stay tuned for weekly updates on seasonal daily volunteer positions. We really need your help this spring to fill garden beds, assist in seed planting days, and planting starts. Details forthcoming on dates and times! Projects will be in central Bozeman this spring - not too much travel needed. Thank you so much.... our volunteers help keep us strong and productive ... we thrive because of YOU!
If you are interested in volunteering for an hour a week this summer, Sage Gardeners has the right positions for you available. We need volunteers to help out in Manhattan, Churchill, and Bozeman. Each of our retirement communities needs one person one hour a week to check in on the gardens, pull weeds, harvest veggies, engage seniors, and water - as needed. Sending photos of growing gardens and seniors gardening via email is needed once every two weeks. A 3-month weekly commitment is needed, however fill-ins can be arranged if you are needed elsewhere! We really need your help, and what a great way to earn your master gardener hours or just help in the community - its really appreciated! Thanks for your consideration and please contact Jonquil with questions!
Sage Gardeners has seeds for you! Its time to start planting indoors.... gardening can begin right now to get a strong early start to your vegetable garden. Let me know what you need and we'll pop them in the mail to you - there's no charge to our Gallatin Valley senior gardeners... we're happy to help and just as excited as you are to get our hands in the dirt! Contact Jonquil today.
