Volunteer Work Day at the Florida Learning Garden

March 14 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am

We appreciate your interest in volunteering with Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful at The Florida Learning Garden. The Florida Learning Garden, a project of Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful in partnership with the Florida State Fair Authority, is a permanent one-acre interactive educational experience. The display garden features raised beds, hydroponics, hugelkulture beds, a Florida-Friendly Walking Trail, butterfly gardens, composting system, and the Cargill Windmill. From ‘right-plant-right-place’ to best practices for water conservation, the Florida Learning Garden educates residents on multiple growing techniques and sustainable practices to utilize in their own homes and gardens.

As a nonprofit, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful relies on the help of individual and group volunteers to help us with the day to day operations of our learning garden. Groups, Student Clubs, Business and Individuals are welcome to volunteer (Volunteers under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult.)

Volunteers can assist with a variety of tasks such as planting, harvesting, and weeding (mainly weeding). There are also opportunities for site projects for those with carpentry and electrical skills.

FROM 7:00 A.M. – 11:00 A.M.
