The gardening season is at our door!

We’re pleased to announce that our volunteer shifts are starting next week at the downtown gardens and have already started at the farm. If you’re already a Roulant volunteer or have come to an info session on volunteering, call us (514-284-9335) or come see us to sign up at 111 Roy!

Garden Volunteer Info Session

If you’re new to the Roulant and are particularly interested in helping out in the gardens, you’re welcome to join us for our next info session oriented towards our agriculture program on Tuesday June 9th at 6pm. Please contact Noémie to sign up.

The Intergen Gardening Project is looking for vols!

More than a dozen of our meals-on-wheels clients have shown interest in gardening at home with you! We’re currently looking for volunteers to work with clients so they can benefit from gardening at home and enjoy a friendly visit. While participating in this project, you’ll be paired with one of our clients and will garden with him or her for the months of June to September. The frequency of the gardening sessions will be decided with the client. Interested in participating? Please contact Noémie for more details!

A quick reminder that you can still fill in this very quick form to let us know about your interests in participating in our agriculture program (gardening, markets, etc.). We’ll follow up with you very soon to let you know all the details!

      Hi Jamie,

      It’s great to hear that you’re interested in volunteering with us! Volunteer activities happen for the most part Monday – Saturday during the day, although agriculture shifts are now winding down. There’s lots of info on the Volunteer page about the different types of activities, as well as a sign up form to fill out before becoming a volunteer: http://santropolroulant.org/en/volunteer-with-us/
