Greencorps_crewWhen volunteering, please observe the following guidelines:

  • Volunteers should arrive at The Plant at least five to ten minutes before each shift. See our Contact page for information about getting to The PlantJust ring the doorbell when you arrive.
  • Please check in with the Volunteer Coordinator before beginning your volunteer work. The Plant’s Volunteer Coordinator will assign each volunteer work for the day after signing in and filling out any necessary paperwork.
  • Volunteers who are present for a whole workday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., are invited to join us for lunch.
  • Please wear closed-toed shoes and clothes that can get dirty. During colder weather, please be sure to dress warm as most of the building is unheated.


For groups of five or more interested in volunteering at The Plant, please email us at volunteer@plantchicago.org to see if there are upcoming projects to assist with. Because we operate with a very small staff, we typically cannot accommodate large groups of volunteers except for large projects
