The Wylde Center's mission is to cultivate vibrant greenspaces and inspire communities of environmental stewards.

The Wylde Center actively engages youth, families, and individuals in their environment, health, and community through organized programs, classes, and events that develop creative skills in sustainable urban living, organic gardening, health and nutrition.

Our annual plant sale offers many unique opportunities for digging in the dirt. We do everything from watering to transplanting to weeding. Because gardening is so seasonally dependent, it is hard for us to predict exactly what we will be doing on each work day, but we can promise you some hard work and getting dirty!

A few things to consider:

Covid-19 Precautions
Our staff is taking serious measures to ensure the safety of our volunteers, staff, and visitors. Staff and volunteers are required to wear a mask when on site, and are asked to bring a personal water bottle. Volunteers will be instructed on safety protocols when they arrive for their shift. Please bring a mask and do not sign up to volunteer if you or anyone you are in contact with has symptoms and/or has tested positive for Covid-19.

Weather 
Our work is dependent on weather.  If on your scheduled work day there is heavy rain, inclement weather (such as thunder, lightning, ice, snow), or the temperature is below 35° or above 94° we will cancel the workday.  We also suggest that on “Orange Alert” days groups that may be affected reschedule their workdays.

Attire 
Closed-toe shoes are highly recommended. We also recommend that long hair be tied up and that loose jewelry not be worn. Please no heavy perfumes. Being Prepared Please apply sunblock and bug spray BEFORE arriving.  We try to keep some on hand, but it is a good idea for your group to bring those items with you.  Every person in your group must have a water bottle.    
*If you are a group that needs to cancel less than 48 hours in advance, please call your sitte coordinator
*Pre-arranged groups of youth volunteers must have 1 adult to every 5 children
*Volunteers under the age of 18 must be signed in by a legal guardian.  
Minor Release Forms can be found HERE.

Volunteer Policy 

  • If no one shows up to volunteer in the first 30 minutes, we may leave the site to attend to other things.
  • Two no-shows and we will remove you from the ability to sign up for future opportunities.
  • Court ordered service must be approved by the Volunteer Coordinator and offenses need to be disclosed. We are not currently accepting any violent offense. If necessary, volunteers may be subject to a background check. Please email Sarah Dasher at sarah@wyldecenter.org to disclose offenses and receive approval.

There is a no tobacco use policy for all of our sites.  If you use tobacco (in any form), please wash your hands and forearms thouroughly before attendance.  We grow a lot of tomatoes for plant sale and farm, and they are susceptable to tobacco mosaic virus, which can be spread from any type of chewing tobacco, cigarette, etc.  (So this is VERY important to our operation).
