Space to Grow Volunteer Opportunities


Space to Grow needs you! After months of planning and construction, our four Space to Grow pilot schoolyards are almost complete.
Come spend a day (or two!) digging in the dirt with us. We're looking for volunteers to spend a few hours planting bulbs and grasses and spreading mulch in gardens. These schools and communities will greatly benefit from your time and help! Healthy snacks and water will be provided. Register below.

Volunteers should dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared to come rain or shine. For questions or to register a group of 10 or more people, please contact Meg Kelly, Space to Grow Project Manager, via email or at 312-419-1810.

Our volunteers have helped at events and benefits, researched new issues in the field, reviewed books and films for our publications, hosted events to promote HSC to friends and colleagues, contributed to our database design, and much more.
