Volunteers needed in Gardens across St. Louis City and County!

Many of the Youth and Community Gardens in the Gateway Greening Network have put in requests for volunteers to help with preparing the garden for spring! Tasks will include: clearing last year’s annual plants, adding soil to raised beds, adding mulch, cleaning up trash that has blown into the garden space, and other miscellaneous “to-do’s” for spring. Please contact us with your name, contact information, your availability to volunteer, and preferred location to volunteer in. We’ll do the rest!
