How do you volunteer?
GOMPS relies on on its devoted volunteers to keep the nursery up and running. We'd love to hear from all interested volunteers ages 14+.
We ask that all new volunteers fill out a Volunteer Application Form.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Garry Oak Nursery please contact:
Mariah Wittkamp, Nursery Volunteer Coordinator
What's it like to volunteer?
Volunteering at the Garry Oak Nursery is a fun opportunity to meet like minded people, learn about Garry oaks and associated ecosystems and give back to your community!
Nursery activities vary seasonally and include planting acorns, re-potting seedlings into larger pots, and weeding, mulching, and fertilizing seedlings as needed. Training, gloves, tools and refreshments are provided.

Weather appropriate clothing and good work boots are recommended - don't forget sun protection!
For convenience, there is now a proper toilet (porta-potty type) on the premises.
Susan is one of our most dedicated volunteers. She says she volunteers in the Nursery so Garry Oaks can grow strong & healthy!
