Serve as a Veggie Exchange Leader: Greet people as they come to exchange the excess from their gardens.  Having multiple leaders at each exchange helps our group of leaders take turns at our exchange sites.

Start a new Veggie Exchange in your Neighborhood:  There's interest in Tam Junction, Tiburon and other neighborhoods in Marin, we just need a few people willing to show up for an hour on a Saturday or other convenient time.  We do all the publicity . . . you just hang out with your neighbors!

MicroGarden Project: Volunteers are needed to help build raised bed microgardens to help expand the number of backyard gardens in Marin County.


PR: Help us publicize the Marin Open Garden Project.

Gleaning Project: Gleaners are needed for harvesting fruit from fruit trees in all areas of the County. High school students looking for community service hours are encouraged to inquire. Click here to access our Volunteer Form, which must be filled out and returned before you can participate in your first harvest. After you have returned your form, we will contact to you to let you know what harvests are available. You choose your harvest and then we provide you with owner contact information. You schedule the harvest at your convenience.

Calling all Canners . . . we could use your help in the upcoming months to help can fruit and train others to can fruit for donation to the Marin Food Bank and other community kitchens.

Donate Used Garden Tools.  MOGP is establishing a garden tool lending library. Donations of old shovels, rakes, hand tools, weedwackers, clippers, pruners, etc. would be most appreciated for lending to others. Click here to send an email about tool donations to contact@opengardenproject.org
