Volunteers

Volunteers play a vital role in the evolution of 577 in positions such as building docents, on-site educators, front desk helpers, resource center sorters and garden helpers.

Teach

We believe education strengthens the fabric of our community. 577 is a curiosity combustor, an igniter of creativity. Instructive, Stimulating. A place for life-long learning and taking care of the land. Share your passion and knowledge with the community.

If you have an idea of a class or skill you would love to share, please email cstose@577foundation.org with details.

Community Gardens

The Community Gardeners are an important part of 577; their gardens have created a pleasant environment for visitors, an education in organic growing and an inspiration to future gardeners. Each year, our gardeners grow and donate hundreds of pounds of organic produce to local food banks—truly embodying a sense of community.

50 garden spots are available on a first come basis. Organic gardening advice, basic gardening tools, hoses, leaf mulch, compost (when available) and seasonal gardening classes are provided.

Job Board

Diversity and equal employment opportunities are integral to all of our activities. We hire and promote based on an individual’s qualifications, skills, ability to do the required work, merit and overall potential. We do not discriminate based on race, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, disability, military status or any other classification protected by law.
