Together we can accomplish so much more and California Native Garden Foundation depends upon its interns and volunteers for the work we do. The sky is the limit and we welcome people from all walks of life, each with their own unique skill set, to join the team.
Volunteers can get their hands dirty in the garden by assisting with planting, weeding, irrigation and so much more. But what if you can’t spend time working in the garden? We can always use a hand educating others about the importance of propagating and restoring native ecosystems. Volunteers can come to us with their own ideas about how they would like to get involved, too.
- maintain garden
- community engagement
Internships are another way to get involved while also earning school credit. Beyond nursery and garden maintenance, our interns have the opportunity to hone skills in areas such as planning, sustainable land use, social and food justice, aquaponics and the competitive field of grant writing.
- field study
- nursery work
- grant writing
- sustainable land use design
- native plant conservation
Though experience and knowledge of gardening and plant identification are certainly plusses, they are not necessary when taking on an internship or a volunteer role. The only requirement is an interest and passion for making our world better through native plant conservation and the empowerment of our food systems.
So let’s get started! Together we are one!
