All ages welcome to volunteer at the Florida Learning Garden!

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 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and/or bring the individual liability waiver signed by a parent/guardian – this form will be sent via email after you register.)Volunteers can assist with a variety of tasks such as planting, harvesting, and weeding (mainly weeding). 

Requirements

There are a few requirements for volunteering at the garden. Please come prepared to get dirty; wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can be dirtied. There is limited shade in the garden, so sun protection is a top priority; please wear hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Water will be provided, however in the name of conservation, we do encourage volunteers to bring reusable water bottles.

Volunteers are invited to join Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful to celebrate Earth Day at the Great Port Cleanup!

Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful is excited to partner with Port Tampa Bay to host the Great Port Cleanup as we Celebrate Earth Day on Thursday, April 22nd.

This cleanup is a part of our Trash Free Waters Program and serves as a call to action to create more sustainable communities by focusing volunteer efforts on activities that impact individuals in need, lead to aesthetic community improvements, and provide a positive environmental impact. Litter on roadways, in parks, rivers, and neighborhoods negatively affects the environment, and isn’t something residents or visitors want to see in their community. Participants in the cleanup will assist with litter removal and beautification of the parks and shorelines.

What to bring:
  • Work or garden gloves
  • Sunscreen
  • Protective footwear (close-toed, no sandals or flip-flops)
  • Hat/Sunglasses
  • Provided: Trash bags, water and soft gloves are provided. Promotional giveaways available while supplies last.
