CG Committee

The Magnuson Children’s Garden Committee is a group of dedicated volunteers who have guided the garden’s creation and ongoing development since 2001.  We work together to host free monthly events for the public from spring to fall, manage the garden maintenance through community stewardship events, and plan fun new features!

We are now seeking energetic volunteers to join us! The Children’s Garden Committee promotes diversity, equity and inclusion, and considers all interested candidates age 18 and older.  We love having members who have children or grandchildren that they like to bring with them to garden events too!

Using the motto, “Many hands make light work”, the committee’s leadership is shared, with the following positions:

  • Infrastructure Leader
  • Volunteer Coordinator
  • Food Gardening Leader
  • Education Leader
  • Refreshments Leader
  • Communication Leader
  • Social Media Leader
  • Treasurer
  • Community Garden Board Representative
  • MG Garden Leader Team Representative
  • There is also a multi-member Garden Design Team

As of October 2021, we are especially in need of volunteers who would like to be involved in the following areas:

• Adult and family garden education;

• Plant health care;

• Social media, e-newsletter, and/or website development;

• Tools and infrastructure.
