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.


Organic Gardening Internship

The 2021 Internship position has been filled and we are no longer accepting applications. Check back in February 2022 for details on next season's position and how to apply. Our Garden Internship position is one that reports directly to the Garden Director and oversees all aspects of the SFLT Food Bank Garden. This position is a great opportunity to get your 'hands dirty' and learn all about garden management and what it takes to grow food at high altitude. Ideally, we are looking for a college student who is passionate about learning how to grow food and develop community.
Key responsibilities of this position include,
but are not limited to:

  • Cultivating the space: planting seeds, maintaining irrigation and garden infrastructure, and harvesting and preparing produce for distribution.

  • Overseeing volunteers for Harvest Mondays and Work Wednesdays.

  • Helping build the new Truckee Community Garden (adjacent to the Food Bank Garden).

  • Running the SFLT compost collection booth at both Tuesday and Saturday Farmers Markets.

Harvest Mondays

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

Help us serve soup to the local community! Each shift is typically 1.5 hours and duties may include prepping food, serving soup and salad, dishwashing, bussing, and welcoming and directing guests throughout the event. It's a great way to get involved, support the local food movement and local business! Fall Series Soup Night dates are TBD. Stay tuned! Link: I want to volunteer for Community Soup Night!

Skillshare Workshop

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. Sign up below to host a Skillshare workshop!

Workday Wednesdays

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. Sign up below or click here for more info >>

Community Garden

We are in need of people with a variety of talents to help with the NEW Comunity Garden space. Building the community garden is a big job. If you have time to lend and are interested in getting your hands dirty we'd love to have you. No experience necesary, learn as you go! Marketing expertise is needed to get the word out about the new space. We'd like to rent all the garden beds to interested community members who are ready to garden once construction is finished. If you are interested and have marketing expertise to lend we'd love to hear from you! Sign up below or click here for more info >>
