Volunteers - making a difference
TheDCH was founded by volunteers in 1977, and to this day, they remain essential to our mission of growing a community that is healthy, beautiful, and sustainable. Our 600 volunteers are diverse, energetic, and talented people, involved in all aspects of our organization. From programming to policy and administration to planting, they do it all. We simply could not do what we do without the many faces of our committed volunteer corps.
Digging into TheDCH’s work allows you to grow, as well. We offer many opportunities and benefits. Some of our volunteers are interested in learning more about green initiatives and choose to be part of a tree planting crew. Others lend time and energy volunteering bimonthly with our Secret Garden program, which introduces underserved four and five year olds to gardening using their own TheDCH-maintained community garden. We can work with you to identify a perfect opportunity based on your availability and desired level of commitment.
We know Delaware is filled with passionate people just waiting to dig in. Come share in our mission through volunteering. Contact Marcia Stephenson for more details. You may download the application and mail or fax to:
