Volunteer At The Haven Garden!

haven-gardenSummer is the perfect time to grab your gardening gloves and do some work outdoors. Perhaps you love gardening, but don’t have time for the upkeep of having one yourself. Then being a volunteer at the HAVEN Garden is for you!

Volunteering is a great way to feel good about yourself, help others that are less fortunate, meet new friends, and have a beautiful day. By helping out at the HAVEN Garden you will help make it possible for them to provide fresh and local produce to our community and help feed people who need our help. Working together with others in the community is a great way to stay connected and meet people you may have never had relationships with otherwise. Volunteering helps us grow as human beings and what a great way to grow as you watch a garden grow along with you!

If you’re interested, here are some volunteer opportunities at the HAVEN Garden, located in Pontiac, MI.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Please remember to sign-in when you arrive and sign-out before you leave!
