Gardening/FundraisingVolunteers from beginners to Master Gardeners, from ages 10-100 with smiling faces are encouraged to come work with us for an hour or a day. Tasks range from harvesting vegetables for donations, pruning flowers, planting seeds, transplanting seedlings and site maintenance to helping to organize our fundraising events.
|We will continue to broaden our mission of growing healthful produce for the under-served of our community by furthering our outreach of promoting community gardens, expanding our sponsored flower basket program for downtown corridor beautification, and sharing growing expertise for a vibrant Carson City. The Greenhouse Project will continue to foster cross generational volunteerism and involvement by encouraging collaboration with other civic minded community entities. As our vision expands, jobs will be created to manage additional operations. Funding The Greenhouse Project will be accomplished by procuring permanent, on-going capital resources including grants, donors and sponsors which will carry our vision into the future in a mutually beneficial and socially responsible capacity for the community.
