Volunteer Opportunities at the Murray Greenhouse
Who Can Volunteer?
The Murray Greenhouse relies on the generosity of those who give of the valuable time to help in many different ways at our Foundation. Some people give one hour and some one or two days a week. Any time you can give, no matter how large or how small in a benefit to our participants and our program.
Some of our volunteers are part of larger groups such as corporate or church groups that have taken up to several days to assist with large projects that we need help with. These groups have been such a great help to our Foundation and we have appreciated all the hours of labor they have given in our behalf.
Our Foundation has been the recipients of many EAGLE SCOUT projects where scout troops have helped one of the troop members organize and complete a project that benefits the Murray Greenhouse. We also provide work projects for individuals who need to complete Community Service hours.
What You Can Do to Help
The following is a list of some ideas of how you can benefit our program with you time:
- Cooking demonstrations
- Art projects
- Reading with Our Participants
- Music and Singing
- Sewing classes
- Computer Updates and/or Classes
- Stranger Danger Classes
- Pet Care Classes
- Nutrition/Hygiene Classes
- Life Skills Classes
- Assist with Field Trips (transportation and supervision)
- Weed and Clean Grounds
If you don't have a specific area you are interested in want to give of your time, there is always a need for extra hands to assist with our daily curriculum.
There is always maintenance of our grounds (i.e. Spring and Fall cleanup) that needs to be kept up with and volunteers are much needed with these tasks. We have been lucky to have youth groups and corporate businesses come in and help weed, clean up and improve our property.
Please call the Greenhouse at 801-266-0669 or Sheila at 801-819-8170 and set up a time to come in and volunteer at the Murray Greenhouse Foundation. We Appreciate You!
Volunteering is fun and easy!
