Huerto de la Familia would not be able to accomplish all of its goals without the incredible support of volunteers. From helping our organic gardening program participants prep soil to leading health clinics to teaching families how to preserve vegetables, volunteers help shape Huerto de la Familia’s programs.

If you are interested in volunteering with Huerto de la Familia, please send an email to [email protected] describing what sort of volunteer opportunity you are interested in. Please allow one week for a response, but always feel free to follow-up with us if you haven’t heard back in a week.


During spring and summer, we host weekly “work parties,” or garden upkeep events that are open to volunteers. These events are often on Friday and Saturday mornings, but exact timing varies. If you are interested in attending our next garden work party, please reach out to Gatlin at [email protected] to be added to our volunteer mailing list.


In addition, Huerto de la Familia is always excited to hear about your ideas for how you think you can support our work. Some of the opportunities we currently have for volunteers include:

  • Leading in-kind donation drives for plants, seeds, tools, equipment and more
  • Working with a family on their garden plot
  • Starting plants and seedlings in your greenhouse for later plantings
  • Helping with weeding and grass cutting
  • Staffing tables at conferences and community events
  • Researching funding opportunities
  • Hosting a fundraising event
  • Asking a friend to donate
  • Helping Huerto de la Familia build a network of supporters


For those who want to commit to a larger volunteer position, Huerto de la Familia offers internships. Internships vary in nature, from more administrative to garden-focused, and typically last 3-6 months for 20 hours/week. Most internships conclude with a final project. If you are interested in applying for an internship with Huerto de la Familia, please contact [email protected].
