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 energetic volunteers to join us! The Children’s Garden Committee promotes diversity, equity and inclusion, and considers all interested candidates.  We love having members who have children or grandchildren that they like to bring with them to garden events too!  Experience in any of the following areas is beneficial but not required:  Sustainable gardening practices in general, outdoor education, food-growing, social media and website management, community outreach, or volunteer recruitment.  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-growing
  • Education Resources
  • Design Team
  • Community Garden Board Representative
  • MG Garden Leaders Representative
  • Treasurer
  • Right now, we also have a Mural Team, which is dedicated to the new double-sided “All are Welcome” murals project!

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.
