Work with professional landscapers and Heritage Park volunteers to expand the native garden areas - digging holes, spreading mulch, planting native plants and trimming some of the existing plants. Volunteers will also install a rain barrel to catch rainfall and outdoor cleanup within Heritage Park.
Assist with refurbishment of outdoor living succulent walls and trail head pathway. Volunteers will assist with repainting and planting succulents at two structures.
Grounds beautification projects will have volunteers working in small groups on activities such as planting, weeding, and painting at different stations around our 12-acre property.
Volunteers will plant ice plant plugs into the sloped dirt bank at the Vista campus (to help shore up the eroding slope) and re-paint the historical Rancho Santa Fe Vista Train Station’s exterior deck railing/bannister.
Volunteer projects include planting seeds, prepping beds, building raised beds for a school garden, fixing irrigation, sorting seeds, processing harvests, caring for animals, watering plants, weeding, or working on a build project. *THIS SITE IS A JOINT PROJECT WITH MIRACOSTA COLLEGE AND PALOMAR COLLEGE
Volunteers will help maintain the gardens by weeding, cutting plants, laying out mulch or other necessary activities.
San Pasqual Academy is a residential foster care high school for San Diego foster youth. The students live, go to school, and receive clinical mental support here. Dragon Organics is an on campus agriculture field dedicated to the health, experience, and education of the students here. Work includes weeding, planting, and harvesting. Maybe some other similar tasks depending on our needs.
