Volunteer’s requirements and duties.


"Garden Makeover" is one of the significant programs of our "YOU should GARDEN" project that allows us to build gardens for three community members to secure fresh food for at least a few months at no cost. This program will also inspire the neighbours to start growing their own organic vegetables. Our project team members and volunteers will directly help people to build small gardens in their backyard/front yard.


We need volunteers to help us to plant the gardens. A total of three days will be scheduled for the planting; each day requires 7-8 hours of volunteering.


Note: This volunteering opportunity requires working outside and travelling within the city of Regina.
