Volunteer


Do you want to do amazing things and help Garden Pool help others? Did you know that you can volunteer with Garden Pool from home or in person and earn Volunteer Points for great things and even overseas trips?

Garden Pool is a federally-recognized 501(c)3 public charity. Thanks to your support, Garden Pool has evolved from an empty swimming pool into an international movement.

We are always looking for individuals and groups who are interested in volunteering with Garden Pool. We help folks with non-violent offences who need to work off community service hours through Maricopa County Courts on a case-by-case basis. We even meet many requirements for interns from colleges and universities through our internship program at Garden Pool.

Our goal as a non-profit is to both innovate and educate the public with agricultural and horticultural knowledge and skills. In short, we want to learn, create, teach, and support better ways to grow food in our community!
