If you miss having your hands in garden dirt, we invite you to think about volunteering with The Gardens at Lake Merritt! We are holding our second new-volunteer recruitment evening in the Garden. We are looking for garden volunteers as well as volunteers for the Autumn Light Festival in October.

Tuesday, August 18

5:30 pm to 7 p.m.

Come in the main entrance right NEXT DOOR to the Garden Center at 666 Bellevue Ave.

Learn how you can help – if you have a talent we can probably use it! We’ll provide some refreshments and a short tour, and discover how you can dig in and help at the Gardens. Our garden runs on volunteer energy!

We are also beginning to recruit volunteers for our big Autumn Lights festival in October – this October event drew thousands last year, and raised funds for our planned entrance gate and landscaping. We expect even more people this year as families discover the fun of art and light in the garden at night. This year we expand to two nights. Help is needed in many areas to make this a success. Come and find out what we’re up to and where you can fit in![contact-form-7 id=”4592″ title=”Volunteer Form_copy”]
