Get Involved

Thank you for your interest in the Green Classroom. There are many exciting ways to get involved in teaching, gardening and planning community activities. Take a look at some of the ways you can help us continue to provide this program and follow the link  at the bottom of the page to access our sign up form.
We can’t wait to see you in the Becker Green Classroom, where STEM fields bloom!!!

Classroom Garden Leader – Volunteer to lead a class each week in a garden activity.  Each Garden Leader is paired with a teacher at Becker.  The Garden Leader communicates with the teacher and prepares and leads a garden activity each week for the class.

Garden Leader Assistant – Volunteer to assist a Garden Leader.  Ideally a class has 2 or 3 activities occurring simultaneously to allow a smaller number of students to work in the class garden.  A Garden Leader Assistant provides additional support and supervision in the garden.

Garden Maintenance – Volunteer to help with ongoing tasks in the garden:  weeding, collecting compost material from local vendors, watering, cleaning the pond, or other projects that need completion.  You can help out at any time, or join us for community garden maintenance during Green Classroom Workdays.

Steering Committee – Join the steering committee and help schedule garden classes, handle communication, plan and lead garden events and workdays and other needed tasks. Meeting are held the second Thursday of each month from 8-9:15 am.
Technology – Use your savvy with technology to assist with maintaining the website and email listserve.
Site Construction and Repairs – The rainwater harvesting system upkeep, hardscape construction, and screen door replacement are just a few of the projects that require a person handy with tools, materials and some heavy lifting and/or climbing.  If you have these abilities, consider calling and offering to help with the latest need.

 Get started as a volunteer here!!!!
