Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Greenway! We strive to offer a rewarding, fun, and impactful experience for our volunteers, and their support allows us to maintain our organic parks and operations smoothly.

The majority of our volunteers work with our Horticulture staff during bi-weekly outdoor projects from March to December and enjoy getting fresh air and exercise while learning about our organic landscape practices and developing their gardening skills. Our skilled staff create a positive and productive experience and the work completed makes a visible impact on the neighborhood.

There are lots of ways to help the Greenway grow! We also have a variety of volunteer opportunities in public programs, fundraising, office work, and maintenance depending on individual skills, training, and interest.

And we have opportunities for corporate, nonprofit, and school groups to help out as well!
