What a grand experience it is when parents come visit the garden, every last class I have invited parents to come snack, sing and ask questions about our beautiful gardens.

It is easy to help out
There are many Non-Profits out there, but not all are very effective or frugal. Our people are people who volunteer, intern and give. People who care. We have minimal staff. Our garden rangers fan out to 68 schools weekly. We respect our people by treating their time as precious. If you volunteer, we want you to be exhausted. We feel that if you are going to give up your day to help us and others then the least that we can do is make it worth your while.
