Donate talents & time.

The Concrete Safaris Community - participants, families, and neighbors - benefit from the service of over 1,200 volunteers each year. Here is a collection of opportunities where your talents and time will be most useful here. Thank you in advance for your support.

After School

Assist children with homework, cycling, gardening, architecture and design, or field trips

Weekly school-year commitment

Prior experience volunteering or working with children required

Background check required

Saturday Garden Sessions

Help maintain our educational gardens. Individuals may volunteer once or regularly. All adults must register separately. When young people (ages 0 - 17) attend, a parent or guardian must register the child and a designated adult must be present for the entire event. To obtain our signature for community service, be present from start to end of the event and let our staff know before the event starts on that day.

Activities may include:

Seasonal garden maintenance

Raking leaves

Creating paths

Planting trees, shrubs, seeds, and vegetable, herb, and fruit transplants

Wheelbarrowing and shoveling topsoil, wood chips, and compost

Picking up trash
