Central Natural Environment Gardens
Get into gardening!
Volunteers have been at the heart of Central Natural Environment Gardens since they were first established in 1995. A great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and be outside! Join us to learn more about organic gardening and native plants! Bring a hat, work gloves, and sun protection. We'll provide tools, training & refreshments. Children welcome. No experience necessary!
Volunteer sessions will return in Summer 2019! See you then!
