Children's Garden Guide

Volunteer to lead Earth Steward Garden Tours in the Children’s Garden. Fun, hands-on garden field trips for school children in preschool through sixth grade.

Volunteer with groups of children as they engage all their senses through exploration and hands on activities at:

Plants For Tea!

  • Tilth Alliance Children's Garden at the Good Shepherd Center
  • Rainier Beach Learning Garden and Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands in Rainier Valley

On garden tours, we taste herbs and flowers, touch the soft and the prickly, dig in the soil to discover compost critters and create opportunities for children to discover the unexpected delights of gardening.

All tours include eating from the garden, exploring the habitat of garden creatures, and doing garden work. Children learn and practice important garden activities such as making compost, planting, tending and harvesting crops, collecting seeds and other seasonal activities. Tours are about two hours during week days, Tuesday-Friday. Shifts normally start at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

 1. Complete a required Volunteer Registration Form. 
 2. Attend a Volunteer Orientation
