Grow with Us

 

Global Growers relies on committed and motivated volunteers to help with our farm operations, so we can create and maintain productive spaces for our partner farmers to be successful food producers. No prior farm experience is needed, just an enthusiasm for working hard and getting your hands dirty.

Whether you're a solo worker or a group of 50, we love hosting volunteers at our grow sites.  From preparing garden beds and making compost, to farmscaping for increased sustainability and planting and harvesting, we have endless opportunities for volunteers to roll up their sleeves and work to support local agriculture. There are also a range of ways to get involved off the farm, lending a hand at events, working our table at farmers markets, or helping to promote Global Growers within your community.

Most volunteer groups are hosted at either Decatur's Kitchen Garden at 500 South Columbia Drive, or Clarkston International Garden at the 40 Oaks Nature Preserve.

Complete our volunteer inquiry form to schedule a group or individual work day, email Desiree at desiree@globalgrowers.org or give us a call (404) 254-6175 ext. 704.  Hope to see you soon!
Remember, when volunteering outdoors it is always a good idea to come prepared. We recommend you bring a water bottle, bug repellent, sunscreen, closed toe shoes, gloves, snacks and appropriate work clothes when working in the garden. It's more fun this way!
