Program Managers facilitate school garden programs and deliver the Green Heart Project curriculum in a one-hour weekly lesson in the garden. These educators connect students to healthy food through gardening, cooking, and creative lesson plans with the help of volunteer Green Heart Buddies. They foster learning by inciting curiosity, original thinking, and discovery while creating an inclusive and safe environment for all participants.

Green Heart Buddies
We are currently seeking Green Heart Buddies for our 2018 Spring programs!
Green Heart Buddies play a key role in helping grow our gardens, our community, and our young Green Heart Buddies through volunteering with one of our in-school and/or after-school programs.
Green Heart Buddies commit to one of our school garden programs for a semester, volunteering once a week for 1+ hours. They are urban farmers, teachers and mentors, working alongside our students, connecting, encouraging and supporting. We have three core values at the Green Heart Project and expect our volunteers to serve as role models by embodying these values:
Respect your Green Heart Buddies.
Respect the Earth.
Green Heart Buddies do not need any prior gardening experience, just a passion for the Green Heart Project’s mission and an eagerness to give back to their community. Being reliable, timely, patient and respectful is a must, as Buddies serve as role models for all of our students!
