Each year gardeners are required to complete eight hours of volunteer time toward maintaining this P-Patch. (Log your hours using this form.)
Get involved via one of the opportunities below. You can sign up for a volunteer activity and find out about other volunteer opportunities by subscribing to and emailing the listserv for this P-Patch or checking our events calendar.
Participating in work parties at the garden. We’re scheduling work parties for a variety of activities, building the tool shed, constructing compost bins, securing our accessible raised beds, and more. Those who are assigned plots will schedule the next work party after June 4.
Take on a leadership role in the garden. From coordinating how we’ll handle compost on site to developing art and signs in the garden, we have a variety of roles you can take to make this a successful community garden. Email the listserv to inquire about what roles are currently available.
Outreach. We want to let everyone in Fremont know about this project, whether they want to get involved in the hopes of getting a garden plot or if they just want to come hang out and enjoy the beautiful gardens. Let us know (via the listserv) if you have ideas for outreach events, materials, or digital media opportunities to get the word out about the Troll’s Knoll P-Patch.
Food. Nobody really likes meetings, but most people like them a little bit if they include food! At the next planning meeting or work party, you can be the hero and feed the people.
Donate through your employer. Do you work for a company that has any kind of charitable giving program? With GROW as our fiscal sponsor, we’re a 501(c)3. We’ll have more information about this as we work on what items we need to purchase for the garden (e.g., shovels, lumber, etc.), but a 30 minute conversation with your boss about giving to this P-Patch counts toward volunteer hours.
Ideas? Let us know what other brilliant ideas you have for contributing to this developing community garden in the heart of Fremont. Email the listserv!
