Ways to help

Summer Garden Volunteer

CitySprouts relies on the help of skilled garden volunteers to help keep our partner schools’ gardens growing and thriving through the summer months. The Garden Volunteer commits to caring for a specific garden during some or all of the summer, communicating with CitySprouts Volunteer Coordinator the beginning and end dates for which they will be responsible.

Corporate Groups

We gladly organize projects at one or more of our sites for our corporate sponsors. We recognize that hosting a group in the garden gives our corporate partners a chance to see the impact of their sponsorship, and we appreciate the positive difference their volunteer contribution makes.

How you helpCitySprouts uses volunteering as a way to bring the school community, families, and community members together to create vibrant learning gardens for children. Through volunteering, CitySprouts invites individuals and groups to help create a world where every child grows up with a garden to explore and learn in.
About usCitySprouts programs reach over 8,000 children from preschool through middle school years in 21 schools in Boston and Cambridge school districts. The in-school School Partnership Program in 21 public elementary schools gives thousands of children on-going opportunities to learn from nature during their elementary education. Teachers report that CitySprouts has a more significant impact for students on special education plans and English language learners, and children with little or no access to nature where they live. 80% of CitySprouts’ partner schools are Title 1 schools. CitySprouts’ out-of-school time Young Leaders Program creates a community for middle school-aged youth to learn about their natural environment, engage in science and engineering through ecosystems and food systems, and explore their emerging identity as young adults. Our tuition-free programs take place in and around public school gardens, making them familiar and accessible places in the neighborhood where young people live, learn and play. Our curriculum is based on youth-driven exploration and projects that give young people the skills they need to think critically and compassionately about the world they live in. Since the organization’s inception in 2001, CitySprouts’ guiding principle of equity and its youth-driven approach have shaped its program development and positively contributed to the field of informal education in-school and out-of-school.
