Volunteering

Volunteers at memorial

Urban Tree Connection is a grassroots organization, and we rely on the partnership of community volunteers to make our work possible. Last year, we had hosted over 300 volunteers who contributed more than 2,500 hours of their time at our farms and garden sites. We appreciate our volunteers from Haddington and across the city and region that have become partners, and their significant contributions over the growing seasons!

We are currently seeking volunteers who possess particular skills - such as web design, grant writing/fundraising, or marketing – to support our organizational advancement. To tell us about your skills or to find out what special projects may be coming up, please email us at noelle@urbantreeconnection.org.
