New Opportunity — JCMGA Friends of the Gardens

By September 29, 2023Beet 2023 10 October

The Community Outreach Working Group and the Member Services Working Group are planning something new – a Friends of the Gardens Program. The JCMGA Board has approved the program to begin in April, 2024.

Friends of the Gardens participants will be non-MG volunteers who are interested in gardening but not interested in becoming a Master Gardener.  The details are still being worked out and we will provide updates in March. We anticipate that participants may want to work in a specific garden because of individual interests. They would also have the opportunity to move around to other gardens at a later date as long as the GEMs involved agree.

Friends of the Gardens participants would work on Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. with GEMs. Participants could start the first week of April and end the last week of November.

This is a great opportunity which will benefit the individuals involved as well as JCMGA. It is a great program to help support our community!

Make sure to let your friends know!!
