Description

As older adults try to stay in their homes longer, yard work is often one of the first tasks that become very difficult for a older adult to keep up with. This can cause fines from the city or HOA, bad feelings with neighbors, etc.  Help a older adult near you stay safe and cared-for by volunteering in the beautiful Colorado sun!  Cultivate's Yardbusters program is designed to work with individual volunteers, families and groups. 

What's Needed To Complete

Special Requirements

All volunteers under 14 years of age need to be accompanied by an adult.

How It Makes A Difference

This program allows our clients to stay safe in their own homes longer. Yard clean-ups can help them avoid falls, fines and embarrassment.
