Louisville Grows works to create a more just and sustainable Louisville, and we can’t do that without our volunteers. Below are the current volunteer options at Louisville Grows:

Urban Agriculture & Our Community Gardens

Green Team Volunteer Member
Our Green Team is our Garden Volunteer team, that works with our growers and gardeners to offer help. Green Team members have numerous volunteer opportunities, including becoming a volunteer at our Hope Farm, as well as attending weekly work nights at our two community gardens.

Contact volunteer@louisvillegrows.org for information on how to join our Green Team!

Urban Forestry & the Love Louisville Trees Program

Become a Citizen Forester 
The Citizen Forestry Training is the foundation of the Love Louisville Trees Planting Program. Through the Citizen Forestry 101 and 102 courses, participants learn how to build and maintain our neighborhood and community forests. Participants are taught basic tree anatomy and physiology, environmental stewardship, tree identification and selection, young tree pruning, and how to teach others how to properly plant and care for their trees. Citizen Foresters who have participated in 2 planting day events are eligible to become Community Foresters.
Keep an eye out in January for our next Citizen Forestry Programs!
