Earth Keepers in Jersey City

Liberty State Park is a local treasure, volunteer to maintain this beautiful park while enjoying wonderful views of the harbor, Lady Liberty, and Ellis Island. Volunteers are needed to support various gardening projects including weeding, mulching, clean-up, removing invasive botanical species and planting.

This is a rain or shine project and starts promptly at 09:00 am with the agency contact. We strongly suggest you arrive 5 min early. If you arrive later than 09:00 am at the starting point it's highly likely you will not find the group. 

We will email a map of where to meet the day before the project. Please call us if you did not receive the email on Friday before 3 pm.

All projects have non-negotiable age restrictions that are noted on the upper right side of each project description. Children under 18 must have a parent or guardian on site at all times.  Additionally, they will need to complete a State Park form (on site) and a Jersey Cares Youth Waiver which can be either submitted online prior to the opportunity, or it can be brought to the project.   All volunteers should:

  • Wear closed-toed shoes/boots

  • Wear long pants instead of shorts to protect yourself while gardening

  • Wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty

  • Bring a hat

  • Bring work gloves if possible

  • Bring water and snacks
  • Wear insect repellent and sunscreen

  • This is a labor-intensive project and all volunteers must have the capacity to complete the tasks noted in the description above.
