Volunteer with Willow Bend

Willow Bend Gardens

Join us in the gardens every Friday and Saturday between 8:00 am and noon. Activities include creating stone niches and pocket wetlands, weeding and grooming, planting and watering. You’ll learn about native plant communities and gardening strategies, and meet visitors from across the Flagstaff community and beyond. We provide tools and supplies; you bring gloves, sun protection, and water.
