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.


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 >>
