Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Bruce Fried, for more information on how to sign-up.

Become a Garden Mentor

If you enjoy getting your hands dirty in the garden, then Green Spaces has the perfect opportunity for you. GSA is  looking for Garden Mentors, willing to donate their time to one of our many gardens around the city. Duties as a Garden Mentor include:

  • Having a good knowledge of plants and gardening in South Central Texas.
  • Sharing your expertise on plant selection, techniques, and maintenance.
  • Helping the community to establish schedules for garden development and maintenance, and assigning duties to diverse members of the garden group.
  • Having fun, satisfying your passion, inspiring those who are green-behind-the-ears, and learning some tips from other  green thumbs.

Mentors must also be willing to commit at least 10 hours per month at  one of GSA’s 30 gardens around San Antonio. Your time and dedication will help a community, and a garden, grow to its full potential. Contact our Community Gardens Program Manager, Angela Hartsell about becoming a Garden Mentor today.
