ABOUT SOIL&WATER GARDEN

Our mission is to connect our community through gardening.

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, 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 couple of tasks scheduled for that day. Our workdays are every Wednesday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon) .

If you choose to volunteer, your time commitment can be as little or as much as you like.  Each workday is about 2 hours.

A low commitment would be one workday a month (about 2 hours total) or frequent coming once a week for gardening (~2 hours/week). If you like what we are trying to do, we'd love for you to be more involved by volunteering on a committee (~1-4 hours/month) to help create events for the community.

WHEN

Volunteer workdays are held twice per week from April to October:

  • WEDNESDAY – 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon)
  • SATURDAY – 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon)

We hope to see you!
