Celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. by volunteering with the Presidio Nursery! Volunteer activities vary throughout the seasons and include seed collection, seed cleaning, transplanting into pots, pruning, weeding in pots, pot washing, maintaining the greenhouses, care of our Habitat Demonstration Garden, and sometimes handy or artistic projects.  The Presidio Nursery is accessible, usually has a diversity of projects to suit varying desires for active work, and welcomes people of all backgrounds, skills, and abilities. Check the Presidio Nursery volunteer homepage for program updates and cancellations.
