Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved with the Green Thumb Project. From volunteering to student employment to internships, find out where you fit in!


We need all kinds of volunteers! Volunteering for The Green Thumb Project is a great way to learn new skills or share the ones you have with the community. We do work all over town and at our own garden sites. Volunteers are our greatest resource and put the community in community gardening!
