Our volunteers are a big part of what we do; we rely on volunteers in order to help build relationships in the areas where we work. Interested in getting your hands dirty? Consider volunteering with City Blossoms this season.


Garden Workdays

Throughout the growing season (especially in early spring and late fall) there are several one-day workdays meant to get big jobs done. If you are looking to put in a few hours of heavy-duty garden work, come join us! Visit our calendar to find upcoming workdays. Individuals and groups smaller than 10 are encouraged to RSVP to info@cityblossoms.org.


Open Times

City Blossoms manages two Community Green Spaces that offer free activities to neighborhood children, families and residents through Open Times five days a week. Volunteers and visitors are welcome to come regularly and help with garden maintenance and kid-friendly activities at either site. There is no sign-up or time commitment required, and anyone who helps gets to take home a small portion of the days harvest when available. To learn more about Open Times, the schedule, and locations, click here.


Looking for workdays for a group of 10 or more, either as part of a staff retreat or a student group activity? Contact info@cityblossoms.org for more information. We typically begin our spring workday scheduling process in January and our fall workday scheduling in June, but please feel free to continue reaching out to us for volunteer opportunities throughout the seasons. Groups of 20 or more may be asked to make a tax-deductible donation to cover the cost of materials and support our work.

The Marion Street garden is a neighborhood treasure that I feel lucky to participate in. It is a great opportunity to learn and play with kids and the community. And a little free produce here and there is icing on the cake.
