Judea Garden Volunteers
Volunteers are the backbone of Judea Garden. Without them, we would not be able to bring fresh produce to those in need.
There are so many ways to help, whether in the Garden itself, helping with distribution or doing supportive work that keeps the Judea Garden project going. There’s a place for every volunteer to use their skills or develop new ones.
Volunteer in the Garden:
- Adopt a Crop – Grab a bunch of folks, pick a crop and off you go. You plant, weed, water and guide the crop to fruition.
- General Volunteer – There is always so much to do in the Garden and many crops to take care of. You don’t need to know a lot about gardening just be willing to help out. You can come on Tuesdays and Thursdays when Denise is in the Garden or come when your schedule allows, checking the notice board for tasks that need to be completed.
- Harvest – During the main growing season we harvest Tuesdays and Thursdays (check for times) and need many hands to pick, weigh and pack the produce for distribution.

- Set up distribution in Washington: helping to set up, label and organize vegetables.
- Breakdown distribution: packing any leftovers for further distribution and cleaning tables.
