Be a part of the Urban Seedling team

We’re always looking for work-hard play-hard live-hard kinds of people. We’ll teach you all about building organic vegetable gardens in all kinds of spaces and creating edible flower beds as well as cultivating fruit in the city. Not to mention you’ll get to work outside all summer long!

Urban Seedling is a family-owned and family-operated business. We believe that locally grown food is something that can be enjoyed by everyone, contributing to a healthy lifestyle and a sustainable community.  We install organic vegetable gardens in schools, day cares, at the workplace or in the home. We have the first (on-island!) greenhouse and store completely dedicated to edibles.

Volunteering

 Are you a passionate gardener? Would you like to come and get your hands dirty in the greenhouse and our demonstration gardens? Urban Seedling offers regular volunteering events. The greenhouse work starts in April and involves help with transplanting, fertilizing and pest management as well as general help around our gardens, greenhouse and garden center.

A day of volunteering at Urban Seedling allows you to meet new people and get your hands in the dirt.  We start out the day with a mini workshop to cover some basic transplanting and seeding techniques.
If you are interested in learning more about organic production of seedling and would like to attend a day of volunteering at Urban Seedling, fill out the form below and we will keep you updated on upcoming volunteer days.
