Next week... I will bring you plenty of opportunities to get your hands in the dirt to help those that may need a little extra assistance. Everything from 1-2 hours at a time for a specific project to 1 hour a week for the summer. Stay tuned..... Oh, and Master Gardener hours apply! Thank you for volunteering, we couldn't do it without you.
We are planning presentations for March .... eager to get everyone started early this spring! We have spring planting dates set for onions, carrots, peas, and greens! If your ready, let us know!!!! Seeds are here and we are chomping at the bit to get our hands dirty!
SENIORS: Call us soon for your seeds.... we'd love to give them to you! Just ask! We have everything YOU need, even a helping hand.
We still have plenty to do though. We need to harvest and put the gardens to bed. If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering this fall, please let us know. We could use your help in Manhattan, Belgrade, Glendive, Bozeman, and Churchill.
Spring planting is right around the corner for the residents at Parkhaven. We would love a couple extra hands to help us plant some seeds. Should take only an hour or two. We will turn the soil, add some compost, and plant some easy pickin' seeds for our seniors in Manhattan. Please contact johni for details. Thanks for your support!!
Seniors - Do you need seeds? We have a lot of different varieties to try. I have organic, heirloom, untreated, non-hybrid, non-GMO seeds. Just shoot me an email and we can discuss what's available, what your needs are, and how I can get them to you!
Thank you to all of our volunteers this past season! We thrive because of our volunteers. We couldn't do the work that we do without the generous support from the community - our volunteers are our lifeline! You rock! Thank you.
Sage Gardeners has one last amazing project this season that needs your help! This week we are installing several large raised redwood beds at the Cancer Support Community in Bozeman. They are creating a Garden of Hope on their premises @ 11th and Babcock and wanted to include raised vegetable gardens. Sage Gardeners has agreed to donate six large beds (two 4x7’, two 4x8, and two 4x12’ beds). But, we have one last component: soil! Would you please, consider taking a couple hours on Thursday afternoon to help fill the beds…. We have over 9 yards of soil that needs to be shoveled… it will take me days if I have to go at it alone! We can start at one pm and the more volunteers we have, the faster we will wrap up.
Hi everyone! Thank you for staying in touch with us... we really appreciate your support. We are looking for volunteers the third week of October 2014 to help us fill garden beds at the Cancer Support Community. Details forthcoming. I'll be in touch as I know more or feel free to contact me for more information.
This is a great opportunity for someone living in the Manhattan area. 1 hour a week would be great throughout the gardening season. Retirement community garden check-ins, watering, thinning, weeding, harvesting, taking any veggies to their kitchen, being social with the seniors, assisting in needs at the garden, or just making a presence once a week in the garden (even if you are relaxing), etc. Any time during the day and week. Once every couple of weeks an email update is requested. For more details, contact Johni at email@example.com. Master Gardener hours apply. Your help is sooo appreciated!
Check back by the end of this week (May 16) as exact dates will be determined for volunteer opportunities (its all about the weather) ... your help is what makes Sage Gardeners grow... thank you!
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.
Believe it or not... projects are getting planned, funds are being raised, and it won't be too long before we need your help! Lots of volunteer positions will be available for this coming spring and summer of 2014. Please visit back to learn of the many opportunities in early spring.
This volunteer position has been filled. Thank you!
A volunteer or two is needed for our Private Residence Project in Three Forks this week and next. We have been busy building and delivering beds for seniors in the Three Forks area and we need your help to fill the beds. You will need a pick-up and the ability to lift and carry bagged soil (1.5 cubic ft in each bag about ~30lbs). Soil is located in Three Forks and we need help delivering around town. Each bed is filled by approximately 22 bags. It could take as little as a couple days or you can space it out over a couple weeks. Must be finished by Friday, May 10th Please pass this along to anyone that may be interested! Thanks so much! Contact information is below.
