Volunteers are needed to help in garden sites to assist with watering, weeding, harvesting, and cleaning. We may also need occasional office help.

The Community Bike Project Omaha provides a safe, positive environment for the repair and distribution of bicycles.
Volunteers are needed to assist with bicycle repairs and to serve as role models for youth participants. No bicycle knowledge is needed, just a willingness to learn!  Prior knowledge of bicycle mechanics is a plus, but we also love teaching people! We can accept up to four volunteers at a time.
