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 work together to plan fun new features!

We are now seeking committed and energetic volunteers to join us! The Children’s Garden Committee promotes diversity, equity and inclusion, and considers all interested candidates.  We are especially interested in new members who have children or grandchildren they’d like to bring with them to events!  Experience in any of the following fields is beneficial but not required:  Sustainable gardening practices in general, outdoor education, food-growing, social media, volunteer management, or community outreach.  For more information, send us an email at magnusonchildrensgarden@gmail.com.  Thanks!

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

  • Infrastructure
  • Refreshments
  • Communications & Social Media
  • Food Gardening
  • Education Resources
  • Design Team
  • Community Garden Board Representative
  • Treasurer

All committee members participate in decision-making, and take turns co-leading or assisting at our free monthly events, and new members are always mentored by veteran members.
