Marin County Directory
Brief description of Organization: A small working farm & hands-on agricultural and environmental education center nestled in 134-acres of national park land on the coast, 45-minutes north of San Francisco. One third of the programs we run serve underserved communities.
Brief description of volunteer need: Please come volunteer with us at the Spring Fling or Harvest Festival, fun family celebrations that support our scholarship programs for underserved schools and families. We ask for help with arts & crafts, the food booth, parking, registration, etc. for part of the day. The rest of the time, enjoy the live music and ranch activities. We are also looking for volunteer musicians to perform on our garden stage. Once in the Spring and once in the fall.
Our Garden Manager also works with volunteers aged 14 to adults throughout the year. The range of activities includes organic gardening, native plant restoration and ranch maintenance projects. You can come for a one-time visit or include Slide Ranch volunteering as part of your regular schedule. We accept volunteers on many Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All visits must be scheduled in advance with our Garden Manager. Please email or call our office with any questions or to schedule yourself or your group.

Brief description of Organization: The seventy Trips For Kids chapters we support combine lessons in confidence building, achievement and environmental awareness through the development of practical skills, and the simple act of having fun. Trips for Kids welcomes families with older kids to volunteer at our training center in the Marin County Canal District.
Brief description of volunteer need: Families can team up to provide practical and fun environmental education information (preservation, recycling, etc..) at our after school Earn-A-Bike workshop in the Canal District of San Rafael. Local youth from this low income community drop in every Tuesday through Saturday to learn bike mechanic skills and to seek tutoring with homework projects.
This is a great location to offer some fun information and practical tips about how these youth can become pro-active earth stewards. We also welcome families that would like to offer some arts project activities to the youth at this program...most types would be suitable.
Families that would like to offer any other support at the after school workshop would be most welcome — let us know what you have in mind!
