“Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” 

John Muir


Volunteering and donating are two great ways to support eli’s garden

For information on ways to support or volunteer with the garden, please share your contact information with us and any special interest you have. Below are immediate volunteer opportunities to help us grow the garden.

However you support the legacy of Elijah Gomez, (financial contributions, community partnerships, volunteering) we thank you from the bottom of our healing hearts.

Donations on the form above go directly to the healing garden and support the creation, future programing, and ongoing maintenance of the garden. Eli’s Garden of Healing is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with the IRS so your donations are tax-deductible.

Volunteer opportunities

Immediate volunteer opportunity (grants): we are looking for motivated, self-starter(s) who can help us (A) identify and create a list of grants to consider and/or (B) help write and apply for grants which will jumpstart our mission. Creating a google sheet with eligible grants with timelines, estimated grant size & links to apply is an easy-to-work on task at a laptop. Grant writing is a bit more effort to thoughtfully tell the story of Eli’s Garden of Healing. A member of the Board will support this/these volunteer(s).

Immediate volunteer opportunity (community engagement): similar to our need for assistance seeking out grant opportunities, we are very interested in finding someone who can research local non-profits, garden centers, violence prevention groups, violence support groups, and community members who we should consider partnering with. The initial need is for a google sheet file to be created. As that list is created, there may be additional volunteer opportunities to engage with selected organizations. Similar to the grants being written by the same or a different volunteer, community engagement can be done by the same volunteer or a different person. A member of the Board will support this/these volunteer(s).
