  • Volunteer Opportunities / Responsibilities: THC is looking for...

    Volunteers to join our garden team!
    We currently have two youth gardens at our affordable housing buildings in the Brightwood and Petworth neighborhoods of DC. We want to enhance this program with the support of volunteers that can use the gardens to teach lessons on health, nutrition, food justice, art and more!

    This volunteer would be expected to facilitate 1-2 hour workshops relating to your area of expertise for youth between the ages of 5-11. They will collaborate with the garden team to make sure that the youth participants get a basic understanding of how one can improve their health and nutrition with plants produced by gardening. This volunteer would also have the opportunity to assist with the garden, build meaningful relationships with youth participants and assist in creating a holistic gardening program with volunteers and THC staff.

  • Types of Volunteers Needed: individual/adult; adult groups of less than 5; individual/high school; adult groups of 6 or more, including corporate teams
  • Hours Needed: business hours during the week; evenings during the week; daytime on the weekend
