Crowley Station Community Garden thrives because its members and community partners love the garden and work hard to make it succeed. Every member should feel empowered to share their ideas, thoughts, and criticisms. Members who want to give back to the garden can volunteer to serve as a leader. Leaders serve between 1-5 years in a multitude of positions. No leader has come to their position as an expert; many have no prior experience in a garden setting. Leadership only requires a love of the garden and the time to dedicate to making it awesome!
As a leader, you should expect:
- To attend monthly garden meetings
- To lend a helping hand to the other leaders
- To be welcoming and inclusive towards members
- To inspire members to get involved with the decision making process
- To spend time in the google email, drive, and website (previous leaders can show you how!)
