Are you looking to make a positive impact in your community? By mastering the design, construction, and maintenance of Garden Pool systems, you can become the go-to volunteer to help with customer support and help people reach their dreams.

Garden Pool Apprentices have the opportunity to directly impact the lives and practices of the people living in their own communities. By overseeing Garden Pool’s public garden displays and running the GP hotline, Garden Pool Apprentices will be helping the public receive the knowledge, skills, and supplies they need to create their own unique garden systems. Supervising and maintaining hydroponics displays for our Headquarters and local Seed Library programs will give Apprentices the opportunity to personally improve the public’s perception and understanding of sustainability, while also improving local access to nutritious and biodiverse food.

As a part of the Design and Build Team, Apprentices will have the opportunity to train alongside Dennis McClung, Goodwill Ambassador and Founder/CEO of Garden Pool. Garden Pool Apprentices will take part in strengthening environmental and economic resiliency through innovative garden system construction and design.

Projects and responsibilities of the Garden Pool Apprenticeship involve:

  • Collaborating with the Seed Library team to maintain hydroponic displays and systems in various library locations
  • Volunteering at the Garden Pool Headquarters to manage hydroponics displays and fish tanks
  • Providing the public with valuable food system and sustainability knowledge (and/or being willing to learn)
  • Learning valuable 3D modeling skills using the SketchUp software
  • Participating in construction projects like building Garden Pools, constructing Seed Library cabinets, and making hydroponic kits and displays
  • The ability to hold, carry, and lift up to 50 pounds
  • Would ideally have a pick-up truck or other large vehicle for transporting equipment and other supplies

The Garden Pool Apprentice position is unpaid. However, talented and diligent Apprentices will be considered for future paid employment opportunities and/or considered for overseas trips with Garden Pool.

Volunteer Location: 659 E. Main Street, Suite 110, Mesa, AZ 85203
