If you have a business in Truckee and are looking for a community project for your employees, the Garden is the perfect opportunity! Our busy season is May through October and business partners can help with Community Dig-Ins, weekly maintenance, or by making monetary or in-kind contributions.
PAID INTERN OPPORTUNITIES
Crime Prevention Educational Programs
As part of community outreach, personnel can attend meetings with community groups to engage in dialogue to learn community concerns, and to provide assistance through information about our services and programs, including crime prevention tips and practices. With this interaction with community groups and associations, the Sheriff's Office connects with the community in a positive and productive manner to foster the ongoing partnership between law enforcement and the community, and encourage community engagement and problem solving. Programs are also available for Scouts, schools, and other groups.
Neighborhood Watch and Business Watch
Residential, Commercial, and House of Worship Security Surveys
Community Assistance Volunteer (CAVs) Program
The CAV program uses volunteers to enhance the services provided by the Sheriff's Office to the community by improving efficiency and productivity. This program uses volunteers to handle assignments and events that do not require a trained, sworn deputy. Members of the CAV program wear a uniform that identifies them as volunteers for the Sheriff's Office. CAV volunteers are not sworn, are not armed, and do not have arrest powers.
Help us harvest our beautiful bounty on a Monday morning from 8am-12pm! All produce grown in the garden is harvested and donated to Sierra Community House. We will spend the morning picking veggies and herbs that are ready to go, wash them, weigh and bundle them to deliver to Sierra Senior Services (across the street from the garden).
Community Soup Night
Showcase your food skills to the community! If you are looking for an opportunity to share your expertise with a group of like-minded individuals, we'd love to connect! Past Skillshares have included Canning 101, Make Your Own Bone Broth and Brew Your Own Beer.
This is a great opportunity to come help in the garden during the week - 9am-1pm. There are countless projects to be completed this season, and a whole flourishing garden space to be maintained. Tasks include watering plants, planting new seedlings, pruning plants, cleaning the space and assisting the Garden Director with any ongoing projects.
We are in need of people with a variety of talents to help with the NEW Comunity Garden space.
