The Disabled Independent Gardeners Association (DIGA) volunteers love to garden and are enthusiastic about sharing their skills to help people with disabilities enhance their gardening experience. Together, volunteers and members make gardening more accessible and achievable. Volunteers meet and work with clients at various community gardening locations to nurture and harvest plants.

Volunteers are also needed to tend to community garden plots, water (where irrigation systems have not been installed), assist at garden work parties, and more!
