Garden for the Environment is the ideal place for a team offsite experience. We tend a one-half acre oasis where people can connect to the natural world right here in the city. As teachers, we believe volunteering should be educational and meaningful.
A group workday program at Garden for the Environment will allow your company or team to get their hands dirty composting, pruning, planting, and harvesting in our garden. And all along, you'll be learning sustainable gardening skills that you can take with you.
Workday fees support our garden staff, allow your group full use of our space, and help to support our free and low-cost educational programs like youth field trips, workshops, and harvest box donations.
