City of Grand Prairie- Volunteer Services

Kirby Creek Nature Center (Master Composters)

Kirby Creek Nature Center


The Kirby Creek Nature Center’s Exhibition Garden is a collaborative effort of the City of Grand Prairie and Grand Prairie ISD. Kids work with an onsite environmental science instructor to learn about nature. Every elementary student in the district comes out to the garden at least once a year.

The vegetable garden is open twice a week. Volunteers help with planting, weeding, making compost and with the general upkeep of the garden.

Volunteers are required to go through a master composter class to participate. Details of the class can be found here >>> Composting and Gardening. The 20 hours of volunteer time that is required for certification can be earned at this garden.
