Community Gardens of Tucson gives families the opportunity to grow and eat the best tasting and healthiest food without worrying how far their grocery money will stretch. That’s why your financial support during these challenging times is crucial.

Here’s how you can help:

  • We are providing more free and reduced rate plots to help gardeners who are having a hard time just paying for basics. We’re also giving some gardeners free plots so they can grow produce to donate to others in need.
  • We continue our Kids in Gardens education program, creating classes and kits so garden education can continue online or in a social distance setting if possible. We are working on creative solutions to make our outdoor garden spaces accommodating and safe for our garden educators, students, teachers, and volunteers. Teaching and inspiring kids is even more important than ever! 

Thank you!

Are you interested in gardening, sustainable food systems or community development?  There are all sorts of ways to volunteer your time at the Community Gardens of Tucson.

Most of the volunteer tasks at our garden sites involve maintenance activities like pulling weeds and moving dirt during our Garden Work Parties. At our Open House Garden Parties we need volunteers to help set up the events and welcome guests. If you are more interested in inside-jobs, we have professional, garden record-keeping, and publicity efforts you could help with. You can decide how involved you want to be.

A range of volunteer opportunities are available:

  • Maintenance and general clean up at Garden Work Days

  • Installation of new equipment or construction of a new garden

  • Attendance at events representing CGT such as Earth Day or other sustainability events

  • Assistance with community outreach including our newsletter or fundraising events

  • Serve on Community Gardens of Tucson Board or Committees

  • Assistance with publicity or garden record-keeping
