“I love volunteering for Green Plate Special! GPS really values its volunteers, we are treated with respect and I love the way we are literally included at the table for the communal meal. Whether it’s taking care of the chickens, teaching youth in the garden or the kitchen, every moment is helping to – make a difference.”

– Debra Page, GPS Volunteer

“Thank you Maia! I really needed this refresher. It’s been a while since my volunteer training session and I’ve found myself forgetting the techniques you model and reverting to my own dictatorial style. I will definitely keep going back to these guidelines to try and relearn how best to communicate with youth(even my own)!”

– Rita, GPS Volunteer


Summer Camp #7: August 27-August 31

Date: August 27, 2018

Monday - Friday | Morning or Afternoon

Come and volunteer with 4th through 8th grade youth at our "Digging Deep!" week-long Summer Camp! Campers will explore what it means to be a chef or a farmer and consider how to create a recipe or how to decide what to grow on a farm.  Activities include developing their own special culinary, garden, or farm art project. Together we will harvest, prepare, and share our lunch every day while "digging deep"!

Volunteers will help with setup and cleanup, support team leaders and youth in the garden and kitchen, and provide general support throughout the day.

  • sign up for the entire week (Monday through Friday)

  • sign up for the morning shift or the afternoon shift or the whole day

*Volunteers must be 18 years or older and will be asked to complete a background check - for more information please contact Claudia at volunteer@greenplatespecial.org
