Volunteer Opportunities

Family Volunteer Opportunity

Calling all families, green thumbs and kids who like to get dirty! We are seeking family gardeners to help keep our garden healthy and growing. Our goal is to have a handful of families who can commit to keeping our garden growing during a four month period, each family taking one weekend per month. Simply submit an email of interest to volunteer@marbleskidsmuseum.org and include your family members and your preference of weekends (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th of the month). We will then create a calendar of your specific weekend dates to make your family a part of our green thumb gardening group. An information session will be provided leading up to your quarterly commitment to provide thorough directions, tools and contacts for you to DIG this great opportunity. What a great way to teach children about giving back to our community!
