Open Hours

Open Hours (Summer 2020):

Sunday 10AM – 2 PM

Open Hours are weekly windows of time in which the Student Organic Garden’s gates will be open. There is at least one SOGA member facilitating each Open Hours. Here is a link to our COVID safety protocol.

The primary purpose of Open Hours is for members of the community to learn about garden management and maintenance through hands-on volunteer work.  Garden tasks range from planting watermelon seeds in the greenhouse to pruning the fig tree to painting a mural on the side of the tool shed.  All garden work is voluntary, and we ask that all new volunteers please sign a liability waiver. We highly suggest wearing closed-toed shoes, sunglasses or hats, and sunscreen when volunteering!


Hang Out

Aside from providing fresh produce to the community and a setting in which to learn about sustainable organic agriculture, the garden is the source of much personal enjoyment for many of us.  Open Hours is a time for garden-goers to relax under the gazebo, snack on some plums, and listen to the sounds of pollinators flying from one flower to the next.
