Come volunteer with us! One of our goals is to bring more volunteers to the Clarke County middle schools from the Athens-Clarke and University of Georgia communities. During UGA’s fall semester we host students from many different majors and classes, including many from Professor David Berle’s Horticulture 2000 class who fulfill service-learning hours working in the middle school gardens.
We also host UGA faculty and staff member volunteers at the school gardens, whether that by through weeding projects, building compost bins, or putting up a sheep fence.
On top of acting as a bridge between the UGA community and the school gardens, we help connect the support of organizations such as Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe, Caterpillar Athens, and the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce to our gardens.
If you or your organization would like to volunteer at one of our middle school gardens, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Wick Prichard directly at email@example.com.
