Volunteers Needed, No Experience Necessary!

Are you interested in organic gardening? Want to learn about what it takes to cultivate and grow healthy, delicious fruits and veggies? Do you like to work outside and get your hands dirty? Or maybe you'd just like to hang out with a great bunch of creative, interesting people and have some fun while you improve your environment. No matter what the case, volunteering in the UNF Ogier Gardens might be for you. Come join our team and help build, cultivate and maintain our beautiful garden. We are always looking for those interested in learning about gardening while lending a hand to help us grow.
