Join us in the garden to lend a hand and enjoy a beverage!

Join us in our Kansas Avenue Learning Garden for our ongoing volunteer work party series. In 2022, volunteers contributed over 200 hours to help keep our learning garden maintained over the growing season. We couldn't do it without you!

This event is open to all ages and gardening abilities! No experience or tools required. Beer and non-alcoholic beverages are provided for all who volunteer. Each event includes seasonal ongoing tasks as well as special projects as needed throughout the growing season. Volunteers are welcome to pop in for an hour or stay the whole time. No need to RSVP or commit ahead of time. (Pro tip - put the following dates in your phone calendar now - then when it pops up you can decide if it works out for you or not!)

In 2024, Happy Hour in the Garden will once again run twice a month from March through October on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from 4-6pm. This schedule throughout the extent of the growing season offers meaningful volunteer experiences for all who come, and deeper care for the garden when it needs it.

Happy Hour in the Garden Schedule

Happy Hour in the Garden will be cancelled if temperatures are predicted to be 100 degrees or higher on the date of the event. Events may also be cancelled due to a high AQI rating due to wildfire smoke - check the calendar event for updated information.
