The Seattle Public Library is looking for volunteers to help maintain the grounds at several neighborhood branches this summer and fall. Volunteers will weed, rake leaves and pick up litter.
While the Greenwood Library does not need gardeners, the Broadview Library, north of Greenwood at 12755 Greenwood Ave. N., does. So do Ballard, Fremont, and several others in other parts of the city.
Gardening at the Library is an opportunity for friends, families and company teams to volunteer together. High school students can obtain service-learning hours for graduation requirements. Student volunteers must be at least 15 years old.
The time commitment is flexible. Volunteers can sign up for gardening work parties throughout the summer and fall, or assist with a one-time project. Work parties will be scheduled between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
For more information, contact Anne Vedella, volunteer services coordinator, at email@example.com or 206-386-4614. Volunteer applications can be downloaded from www.spl.org (select Support Your Library and go to the Volunteer Opportunities page).
