Join us for this month’s Coalition of Austin Community Gardens meeting Monday, May 18!
This month’s panel discussion topic is Administrative Best Practices & Volunteer Management at Community Gardens.
A community garden is basically a small, volunteer-run organization, and it takes management for a community garden to thrive. Learn from experienced community gardeners and professional volunteer managers about what records are essential to keep and strategies for keeping them; effective tools for communication; and how to motivate and organize volunteers at your community garden. Panelists include: Alexandra Castañeda, Festival Beach CG, Sabrina Joplin, Adelphi Acre CG; Mark Thomasson, Clarksville CG; Paula Arciniega, SFC Volunteer Coordinator; and Rebecca Saltsman, Keep Austin Beautiful Community Programs Manager.
