How To Volunteer

With many regular service opportunities, we welcome your help and encourage you to DIG IN!

Volunteer opportunities are available in our gardens and during special events. 

All of our recurring volunteer opportunities are listed via our Hands On Atlanta website (Click Here!) where you can sign up to volunteer with us.

Group volunteer opportunities are available by appointment only please contact to sign-up as a group. We have had many school clubs, corporate groups and service clubs come together to support our garden spaces. 

Please Note: We recommend water, bug repellent, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, and appropriate work clothes when working in the garden. If there is a Health Advisory Warning, we advise that seniors and youth do not volunteer with us outdoors. If it is precipitating heavily or below 35 degrees, the workday will be canceled.
