Volunteer at HPEC

Are you interested in making a difference in your local community? Would you like to gain or improve your gardening skills? Do you have a passion for sustainability? If you answered yes to any of these questions, HPEC might be perfect for you!

As an environmental nonprofit, we need your help to continue our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable living in Northern Colorado. Beginning in March, HPEC will be hosting weekly gardening and land stewardship volunteer projects on our site. Individuals, families, and groups are all welcome and there are no skills required. Come out and meet new friends, learn about plants and help us grow!
