HOW TO HELP

SUPPORT OUR GROWING CAUSE…

CALLING ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS, STUDENTS, PARENTS & TEACHERS

We need your help as we work to plan and design your garden, collect materials (tools, wood for garden plots, soil, watering devices, baskets, fencing, equipment, etc.) and fund-raise. Our group is led by an all-volunteer board of directors, consisting of the parents, teachers, community members and invested organizations.

A FEW WAYS TO HELP…

FUNDING

Rooted in Wyoming is a registered non-profit (501C3) organization funded by community supporters through individual donations, major gifts, bequests, corporate contributions, foundation grants, and/or interest from investments.  Individual garden projects may from time to time receive designated funds and in-kind gifts. To make a contribution, click here!

VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT

Volunteers serve in many capacities by helping with garden build days and workdays, seasonal maintenance, and even harvesting in some cases! Volunteers are also needed as special projects develop. Work can include counting seeds, delivering supplies, and assembling materials and so on.  To be added to the ‘Call for Volunteers’ list, click the button below.

TOOLS & RESOURCES

Running a school garden requires not only horticultural knowledge but also “people skills” and common sense.  Other useful qualities are enthusiasm, organizational capacity, and a flair for publicity.  You need to plan and manage, find resources, get help and support, keep in touch with those involved, organize garden work and lessons, motivate people and publicize garden achievements.  However, garden leaders do not have to do all of this themselves.  Good garden management means building up the school’s capacity until the garden can almost run itself. 

 Our ongoing resource library includes many resources and on-line tools to help leaders navigate the planning process, building and maintenance phases, and communication with various groups.
