Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community and for groups to learn more about each other and build teamwork skills. Individuals or groups interested in volunteering at the garden should e-mail sprout@drake.edu. Age or type of group doesn’t matter as long as you are willing to engage in service! Volunteer activities can range from pulling weeds, harvesting plants, watering the garden beds, doing activities with youth, painting, spreading mulch – it depends on the day.

If your class, club, church, company, etc., are interested in doing some community service at the Sprout Garden, contact us!

Or visit our Facebook page at Sprout – The Des Moines Urban Youth Learning Garden and send a message or Instagram @DrakeSprout.
