Work with us in the Peace Garden!
The weather is hot, and the tomatoes are growing like weeds! (Unfortunately, the weeds are also growing like weeds.) In August and September, we will need volunteers to harvest, weed, water, and prep and plant fall crops. We meet Mondays and Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. Please sign up below!
Staying Safe in the Garden
Even as we work the earth to prepare it for planting, we’ll be exercising an abundance of caution. We ask that you follow these guidelines as you make your way to the garden and work in it.
St. Alban’s Peace Garden will follow CDC guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- If you are feeling sick, please stay home
- There will not be more than 10 people in the garden at any one time
- Please drive separately unless you are from the same family
- If you arrive before your shift, please don’t leave your car until fewer than 10 people are in the garden
- Please bring your own masks and gloves
- Soap and water and hand-sanitizer will be available
- Bathrooms will be open and available for cleanup
- Tools will be cleaned at the end of each shift
- Please maintain at least 6 feet of separation between you and other gardeners
- Be aware that your shift will end ten minutes before the hour to allow a transition between shifts (on Work Days)
To ensure we keep to 10 or fewer people in the garden at any one time, please click the link above to sign up for a shift. You may work more than one shift on Work Days. Thank you!
Groups and individuals are welcome!
Are you passionate about helping those in need? Are you heartbroken by the senseless tragedy of the ever-increasing homicide rate in our city? We have a place for you to make a difference!
We always welcome those who want to volunteer or contribute funds.
Who are our volunteers? People from St. Alban’s. Community members from around St. Alban’s. People from other Episcopal Churches. Gardening gurus from Society of St. Andrews. But it can be ANYBODY of ANY ABILITY! All are welcome!
