As a volunteer for the Rec Center Garden, you will be helping to maintain the general upkeep of the garden while learning and sharing with other volunteers.

You will also be invited to special volunteer events like workshops, fundraisers, potlucks, and harvests of extra produce from the demonstration beds.

When you fill out the form below, we'll put you on our list of volunteers and send you important information throughout the season. If you have any specific skills or interests, please include them in your message!



We are looking for individuals who have a passion for gardening and a willingness to meet once per month to help make community gardening a success in Cortez.


We especially need people who can help us form a working group that will lead workshops, raise money, and work with other organizations in Montezuma County that advocate and work for healthy foods and regional food security.

Let us know in the form below how you'd like to be involved!
