What is Adopt-A-Garden?

Adopt-A-Garden is a volunteer activity where organizations, groups, or individuals "adopt" a garden on LSNC’s grounds. Join our volunteer community and show off your gardening skills by helping us plant and maintain our gardens during the spring, summer and fall.

Why Adopt-A-Garden?

Gardening is a great way to get outdoors and relieve stress. If you do not have space to garden at home or need an extra garden to tend this is a great opportunity for you! Businesses and organizations can also use our Adopt-A-Garden program as a team building activity and a way to give back to the community. Hand painted flagstones featuring the individual’s or organization’s name will be placed in each garden.

What will you need?

Adopters will need to provide plants, maintenance and their creative gardening skills! Some gardening tools are available on a limited basis at LSNC, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own. Plant purchases will be reimbursed to a certain amount.

When do we start?

Kick-off to the gardening season starts in Late April with an orientation meeting. Once you adopt, the garden will be yours to care for from May 1st – October 31st.

How much does it cost?

Adoption is FREE and is done on an annual basis! Plant purchases are up to you, but we will reimburse you to a certain amount depending on your garden choice.
If you or your group would like to Adopt-A-Garden, please read through and complete this application and send it in today!
