Gardening enthusiasts, volunteers, folks interested in learning more about gardening, new homeowners looking to learn the ropes of home and garden maintenance, people without their own yard who want to get their hands dirty, folks considering starting a new gardening/yard maintenance small business, or folks just looking to meet new friends in the area — we want you! Join today!

All ages, all skill levels, all levels of physical abilities are encouraged to join! There are TONS of ways to participate (watering the gardens, planter boxes, containers and indoor plant care, prepping seed starts and such, plant design, club coordinators, helping host events and activities, and more!)  Most activities are wheelchair accessible. The only requirements are an interest in gardening, meeting new friends, and an interest in community building. (Kids under 18 must have permission from a parent or guardian.)
