JHBG is an all-volunteer community nonprofit organization, so there is no paid staff.  We work to make the community a better place by helping passionate people follow their passions.  Whether you are interested in joining our gardening group that works every Saturday from 10 AM to 1 PM, or writing an article for the newsletter (The Views from the Heights) or this website, planting flowers, helping to organize concerts in the neighborhood, working on beautification efforts, or any of the other various JHBG efforts, your help will be much appreciated.

No long-term commitment is needed. Just showing up at an event and connecting with neighbors may be all you have time for, and that’s fine. So join us to make a meaningful and rewarding contributions to Jackson Heights. Please e-mail us at info@JHBG.org if you are interested in volunteering to help organize any of our events or if you have ideas for additional community events.

From April to Thanksgiving we have weekly gardening activities every Saturday from 10 AM to 1 PM around Jackson Heights.  All are welcome to join us.  We provide gloves and tools, so all you have to do is show up.  Check out the website or the Facebook page to find out where we are working on any given day.

JHBG is happy to work with student groups or scout troops on special projects, just e-mail us at info@JHBG.org.
