Volunteer at Work Sessions

We are expecting the work session this weekend (10/20) to be VERY busy. If you are planning to attend, please help us out by bringing the liability waiver already filled out (if needed). Please follow the link below to find the waiver release agreement. If you have your own gardening gloves, it may also be a good idea to bring them with you on this occasion.


Work sessions are held twice a month, on the first Saturday of the month and the third Sunday of the month from 9am - 12pm.  There is no need to register for the work session, just show up on the day!

We welcome volunteers of all ages at Ulistac, however, we do require children under the age of 14 to have an adult remain with them during the work session.

If you would like to organize a work session for a group of 10 or more, or would like a more personal work session, please see our group and corporate volunteers page.

*Gloves and tools are provided*
