Green Heart Buddy Volunteer
Green Heart Buddies play a key role in helping grow our gardens, our community, and our students through volunteering with one of our in-school and/or after-school programs. Being reliable, timely, patient and respectful is a must, as Buddies serve as role models for all of our students!
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.
Green Heart Buddies do not need any prior gardening or education experience, just a passion for the Green Heart Project’s mission, working with elementary-aged students, and an eagerness to give back to their community.
Urban Farm Field Trips
Interested in bringing a group of students to the Urban Farm at Enston Home? A Green Heart Urban Farm Field Trip will consist of a farm tour, hands on garden activity, a fresh picked taste-test, and a takeaway. Field trips can be designed to the meet the needs of your students and cover a wide range of topics. We practice respecting ourselves, buddies, and the earth by following strict COVID-19 guidelines. Please note there is a cost of $10/person for field trips – however, if this cost is prohibitive, we are happy to discuss payment with you further.
Fill out this inquiry form to get the process started and contact Kenai at email@example.com with any questions!
We are always looking for qualified & passionate volunteers to support our school gardens and the Urban Farm at Enston Home! Garden Volunteers commit to garden work days or special projects throughout the semester.
With COVID-19, our fall work days will have a capped number of volunteer spaces and will follow safety protocols. Fall workday dates are posted on our Events Calendar, so take a look, sign up and we’ll see you out in the garden!
