In 2007 VINES was created by a group of dedicated volunteers and continues to thrive with the help of an active volunteer base. We are always seeking a team of motivated long-term volunteers to help with several different projects. If you have a skill or interests not listed in one of our volunteer opportunities, please fill out the volunteer sign-up form and let us know how you would like to help. To stay up to date on when and where volunteer opportunities take place, you can join our email list or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
