Volunteer in the Garden
A full explanation of the work team structure and expectations is available at a link below. St. Christopher's Crops is a family-friendly ministry and children are welcome when accompanied by an adult who can help them learn through the activity.
Join the One Day per Week for One Month Plan
Workdays in the garden will be Wednesdays and/or Saturdays and we will be asking volunteers to join a work team of at least four who will commit to working one day a week for one month. See Garden Crew member responsibilities at the link below.
Be a Work Team Leader
Each work team needs a team leader(s) who will identify what needs to be done during work time. Ideally, a work team will be made up of a leader, two volunteers, and a fourth volunteer to serve as the Distribution Volunteer.
The Distribution Volunteer delivers crops to designated food pantries or to our summer food program. This person may or may not work directly in the garden. An overview of the work team and the Distribution Volunteer are included at the links below.
