Do you love urban gardening, working with youth, and hands-on education?
The Danny Woo Children's Garden is looking for volunteer garden educators to lead classes and field trips throughout the summer! This is a great opportunity to work in an intergenerational growing space to teach children and youth (ages 5-12 years) about the seed-to-table process through a culturally relevant lens.
We're looking for dynamic garden educators who are eager to dig into the soil, can lead cooking activities, and are able to facilitate youth exploration through positive reinforcement and experiential learning models. Prior experience in garden education is not necessary, as we'll give you the training you need, but we do ask for a folks with a friendly and flexible demeanor. Individuals who share identities with our racially and culturally diverse youth are strongly encouraged to apply! *Background checks are required for all volunteer garden educators.
Children's garden programming will mainly be held on Thursday afternoons, with some Tuesday and Wednesday opportunities.
The Danny Woo Community Garden is a 1.5 acre edible growing space located in the heart of Seattle's Chinatown/International District. The garden has been a place for elders to grow for over 40 years and is also home to a children's garden, chicken coop, and outdoor kitchen. Visit us at 620 S. Main St., Seattle, WA 98104.
