Being a Garden Mentor is a one-on-one way to volunteer. Mentors work with new DCGO members, one-on-one, to help them begin gardening at DCGO, answering their basic gardening questions, making suggestions and encouraging their efforts.

  • Introduce yourself to new DCGO member(s) who would like a Mentor (referred to you by DCGO Membership)
  • Share gardening tips and techniques
  • Help new gardeners learn about gardening in zone 7B
  • Offer encouragement!
