Community Gardening Incorporation

Read the following case on Community Gardening Inc., then respond to each of the questions below:

Community Gardening Inc.

Every gardening project at Community Gardening Inc. requires committed volunteers. Volunteers contribute a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to various programs in an effort to address their mission of “cultivating community through sustainable urban agriculture”. Volunteers bring abundant skills, fresh ideas, and extra hands to help with garden activities. Volunteers in our organization often join because they care about the project and its participants. They may want to be more involved in their communities, meet new people, and “make a difference.” Sometimes they become involved because their children are in the program, or they want to be associated with a worthy community effort.

Respond to each of these questions by due date in syllabus:

  1. –What may be some of the different types of volunteers seen in this organization?
