Volunteer With Us

Due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19, large volunteer events were cancelled at HPEC in 2020. We do have an ongoing need for individual or small group volunteers, for essential work in our green house and gardens, which can be accomplished within strict COVID-19 guidelines. Please feel free to reach out to info@suburbitat.org with any questions!

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! Contact us at info@suburitat.org.


In 2019, 192 one-time volunteers, 18 recurring volunteers, and 4 interns contributed 1,022 total hours of volunteer time to HPEC, the equivalent of $25,989.46!

Volunteer projects this year included expanding the community garden with Constant Contact, CSUnity Cleanup, Earth Day Medicine Wheel Garden Planting with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, Transplanting with the Foundations Church Youth Group, weeding with Nutrien, and public Native Plant Nursery volunteer days! Thank you to all of our individual and volunteer groups- you are the Sun that helps HPEC grow!
