For MGs

We have a new volunteer signup system for King Co. Master Gardeners!

Because King Co. Master Gardeners have been such a vital part of our volunteer support for the past 19 years, we now have a SignUp Genius webpage especially for all MGs who would like to help sustain the Children’s Garden, either during the COVID-19 restrictions and/or after we are able to resume hosting large group stewardship events, Family Garden Day activities, and Nature Walks.

Our SignUp Genius page contains our current Tuesday and Friday volunteer days, which are organized to follow all the WSU/MG Program guidelines.  At each event, a Children’s Garden Committee member will lead the garden maintenance with only 2-3 assistants, and with everyone following mask, gloves, sanitizing, and social distancing protocols. Our SignUp Genius page contains all the details. The leader will mentor you as you get familiar with the “routine”, and will also welcome your ideas on how to improve any aspect of these events! 

We are hopeful that sometime later this year, it will be possible to host our regular community group stewardship events on the 1st or 2nd Saturday of each month (perhaps with 1-2 Friday events also), and also host Family Garden Days in tandem with most of these stewardship events. Our summer events are still posted on SignUp Genius page in case you’d like to volunteer for any of them. If those have to be cancelled, we will let all volunteers know by email.

We hope to see your name sometime soon on our SignUp Genius webpage, and to welcome you in person to the Children’s Garden! For any questions, please contact Emily at magnusonchildrensgarden@gmail.com
