RIGC Associate Gardener Program
Long time gardeners who would like to keep their key for garden access or join community events or serve on a committee may become Legacy Garden Associates.
Roosevelt Island residents who join the waitlist may opt in to become Garden Associates. Associates can help with one particular gardener or work on a committee like compost, landscape, or outreach.
Associates may not run for office or vote. To check on becoming an Associate, first join the waitlist and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students seeking community service credit, waitlist members, or friends of RIGC can join us for Community Service Days or help with special projects in the garden.
If you are interested in helping out, please email at email@example.com.
Volunteers are not required to be Roosevelt Island residents, but all volunteers must fill out a liability waver.
