Come join Summit Community Gardens and EATS in our gardens and schools as a volunteer!
We have a variety of programs that are taking off in our schools and garden and we need positive adult role models to help make these programs happen! Share your passion for gardening, healthy food, kids, and education by volunteering with us for one of the following programs:
Our Summit Community Garden is a space for building community, learning new skills, and growing sustainable food in Summit County. The hard work of volunteers helps make the garden the amazing place that it is, and we love welcoming new folks to our community. As a volunteer, you’ll get to learn about community gardening and sustainable agriculture while spending time outside in the shadow of the Wasatch mountains!
Do you want to help Park City students take ownership over their healthy food choices? Be a part of nurturing a generation of healthy eaters with rock-solid lifelong health and wellness habits by volunteering at our elementary and middle school cooking classes. Come assist our instructors in providing the most enriching, nutritional, education experience we can offer to Park City youth. As a volunteer at our cooking classes, you’ll get the chance to prepare and eat a nourishing recipe made from scratch with students. No prior cooking experience necessary - just bring yourself and a positive attitude! We’ll provide the aprons, food, and equipment.
Do you believe that students should understand where their food comes from? Studies show that children who grow their own food are more likely to eat fruits and vegetables as an adult. Gardening also helps students learn valuable social and interpersonal skills that translate in and out of the classroom. Our indoor hydroponic systems mean that our garden program runs year-round! Come get your hands dirty by volunteering to work at one of our schools' gardens.
Heading to a community event in Park City? Chances are Summit Community Gardens and EATS will be there with a table or booth! Volunteer with us at community events like Hike4Hunger, Miner's Day, garden dinners and Back to School nights to help spread the word about our work in the community.
