Program Description


Teens, join us to get your hands dirty for the community! Learn about organic gardening and support your local community garden in this 90-minute volunteer opportunity for teens in grades 9-12. Tasks include weeding, watering, mulching, harvesting, planting, and more. Training and tools will be provided! Please come prepared to bend, squat, lift, and move your body - close-toed shoes are required, and clothes you are willing to get dirty are recommended.

Teens and their parents or guardians are required to sign a volunteer agreement in advance.

This event is supported by Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation.

This project was supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.


Participants in this event may be photographed by Library staff. These photos may be used in promotional or educational publications, including in print, social media, and presentations. Please see staff if you do not consent to having your photo taken. Staff will obtain individual, signed photo releases of photographs that contain only an individual as opposed to a group.

In case of inclement weather, outdoor activities may be canceled. For the most up to date information, please contact the library with any questions or concerns before traveling to library events.
