Volunteer Opportunities

The Coppell Community Garden, an all volunteer run organization, is successful because of the many volunteers joined in the effort to build community and healthy living in Coppell. The volunteers have learned, planned, and worked with one another to develop a system of transformation for each individual involved throughout the larger community.  Annually the organization logs nearly 9,000 volunteer hours.  To register to volunteer, click here.

Adopt a Plot

Adopt a Plot – Volunteer gardeners adopt a raised bed to grow produce for the food pantry and learn about organic gardening.

Volunteer in Our Greenhouse

Grow plants in our greenhouse  – Volunteers start seeds, transplant seedlings to pots, water and fertilize seedlings, clean and maintain the greenhouse, wash and sterilize pots and trays and hold twice yearly plant sales at the Coppell Farmers Market.

Youth Action!

Do you like to work outside, garden and learn? Come be a Youth Action volunteer at the Gardens and make a difference! Volunteers learn about horticulture, landscaping, sustainable gardening, organic methods, entomology, herpetology and much more. Wear old shoes, dress for the weather; bring gloves and water to drink. If you have a designated volunteer form you are required to have signed, bring it as well.

We are currently discouraging outside volunteer activity at our gardens in the interest of minimizing COVID-19 exposure risks for our gardeners and the public. We plan to return to our normal volunteer procedures as soon as it is safe to do so.

Join us Saturday mornings from 8:30 am – 10:30 am at our Ground Delivery Garden. Sign in and check in with the Volunteer Coordinator when you arrive.
