Volunteer Opportunities

The Garden and Food Well Alliance know that the best way to experience urban agriculture in our city is to volunteer at a nearby garden! Give back, get your hands dirty and engage with some beautiful, natural and often overlooked places in Atlanta. Typical volunteer tasks include weeding, mulching, turning compost, garden beautification, invasive plant removal and planting/harvesting as needed at local community gardens across the city.

  • Volunteer groups operate year-round (on various days) from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

  • Garden workdays are appropriate for groups of 8 – 25 volunteers, ages 8+.

  • Bring sturdy, close-toed shoes, clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and a reusable water bottle. Sunscreen and bug spray are also recommended.

  • Food Well Alliance will provide all tools, gloves, water, snacks and instruction for all workday tasks.
