    Native Plant Sale 

    Our annual sale is one of the largest of its kind in New England. We depend upon 50+ dedicated volunteers to organize and run this multi-day event each year.

    Tasks include unloading plant deliveries, sorting and pricing pots, directing traffic, and assisting customers. This is an excellent opportunity to work side-by-side with our plant experts and learn more about native plants. 

    Volunteer sign-ups will be announced in our eNews. Learn more—including dates of our upcoming sale—on our plant sale page.

  • Volunteers plant trees in Ayer.

    Ecology Actions

    Ecology Actions are opportunities to volunteer with us at community stewardship projects that support biodiversity.

    We partner with other non-profits and community groups to recruit the volunteer help they need for hands-on projects. Actions may involve installing native plantings, tending existing ones, removing invasive plants, and more.

    Our Members are Our Volunteers

    For our first four years, Grow Native was an entirely volunteer organization. From the board on down and throughout our membership, so many people contributed both their time and essential financial support to help us build our programs. We are very grateful for this strong commitment to our mission and we celebrate our community of members who are both doers and donors. Today, more than 50 members volunteer and work closely with our two-person staff each year, quite simply making all that we do possible. Because of their dedication, we accomplish much more than many organizations our budget size. As a small nonprofit organization, we know the importance of this model to achieving change in this world. Our members are our volunteers, and our volunteers are some of our most generous members. Thank you, all!
