ABOUT US

Soil&Water Garden is a group of greater Mountain View residents with a shared interest in gardening, fresh food, and cooking.  We believe strongly in building community where we live and volunteer our time to help create a new shared volunteer garden space in Mountain View, California.  We appreciate your support.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

To participate as a volunteer or to get your kids involved, you simply need to be interested in gardening, and then show up on garden workdays as often as you like. Each garden workday will have a few tasks scheduled for that day. Volunteer workdays are held during spring/summer at Soil&Water Garden on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.  We create one kid's focused event each month and regularly give them fun tasks like watering and picking. 

If you choose to volunteer, your time commitment can be as little or as much as you like.  Each workday is around two hours. A low commitment would be one workday a month (about two hours total) but we'd love your help every week if possible. If you like it, volunteer for a committee and help create events for the rest of the community.

Bring a hat and a water bottle. We usually have a light snack, but feel free to bring something to share. This is a volunteer garden and is open to everyone. No experience necessary. If you like to garden, you're welcome to join us.
