The mission of the Huntington Beach Community Garden (HBCG) is to educate children and adults about organic gardening and to provide an area where individuals and families can grow fruit, vegetables, flowers, and herbs for their own use and for the use of local food banks. Almost any skill is needed and appreciated. Appropriate experiences are available for those wishing to enhance and maintain professional skill sets.
Working in the garden is also a fun way to complete needed community service hours.
If you’d like to volunteer in the garden, please bring a sunhat and sturdy shoes. Tools and gloves are provided. No experience is necessary.
We have numerous volunteer opportunities for adults and youths including:
Communications Committee: Maintain the garden’s social media, internet presence, newsletter, Website – design, content writing, and photos.
Garden Events Committee: Plan promotional events for the garden (i.e., HB Green Expo and Forum; Harvest Celebration; and Holiday Celebration, etc.)
Harvest Brigade Committee: Deliver donated produce to local food banks and charities.
Scouting Committee: Provide outreach to get Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops involved in the garden
Volunteer Committee: Coordinate and grow the volunteer base for the garden
Maintenance Projects: Weeding common areas, planting, pruning and repair
Harvest Brigade Plot Maintenance: Harvesting, planting, watering and weeding designated for local foods banks and charities
