Garden Work Schedule

The calendar below shows whats happening at the garden.  You can change the view to weekly if you want to see a better breakdown of the time slots. If you or your group would like to volunteer your time in the garden, please contact our garden volunteer coordinator, Mandy Newman.  You can contact Mandy by email at mandynewman@foopanga.org or by phone at 570.674.9777.  You can help with something that is already on the calendar or you can offer to work in any open time slot between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Many groups are able to count time spent it our garden as community service hours to meet requirements of an achievement or merit badge.  You can bring your group out for a single session, or stop by on a regular basis to tend to the garden.

What would be most helpful is to find individuals or groups that will be responsible for a specific task each week or as needed. For example:

  • One person to mow the roughly 4 foot area directly outside the main garden every other week.
  • One person to weed the raised bed boxes every other week.
  • One person to water the raised beds once or twice a week as needed.

By assigning specific tasks to each volunteer you don’t end up stuck doing more than you have time for. But everything gets done with everyone’s help. If we all do a little, a lot will get done.
