Attention Green Thumbs

Garden 2

Star Island is looking for volunteers for our end-of-season in the gardens!

Located an hour’s boat ride from the mainland, Star Island has several gardens that could use your help as we harvest and maintain the gardens before the close of September. Volunteer tasks include routine maintenance, planting and crop rotation, irrigation lay-out and repair, weeding, harvesting, cultivating, and processing (washing and weighing). Volunteers will be provided boat transportation to the island, and room and board in turn for working 7 hours/day.

Volunteers are encouraged to come for an overnight, several days, or a week.

If you’re interested, please email Elspeth Pennell at
