Down Home Ranch is a working ranch located in Elgin, TX that has fostered community, fueled social enterprise, and sparked joy in the lives of thousands of people with disabilities. since 1989. One way we sustain our programming is through our gardens program. Every year we grow around 25,000 spring color plants, 12,000 poinsettias, 2,500 fall plants and more. Due to the pandemic, we are in desperate need of volunteers to kick start our spring color planting and we hope you can help!
 
Volunteers will work in stations, including filling plants with dirt, planting seedlings, transporting plants to greenhouses, spreading plants and inserting waterlines. These tasks are ideal for families or small groups. The safety of our volunteers is very important to us, so we require health checks before arriving at the ranch, wearing face mask/coverings and we make sure to space out volunteer stations and sanitize areas/carts between groups. Listed below are the current volunteer dates:
  • Monday, Jan. 11th – Saturday, Jan. 16th: 10 volunteers needed each day. One shift available each day 8am-12pm
  • DHR's Weekend of Service in honor of the MLK holiday - Friday, Jan. 15th – Monday, Jan. 18th we need 20 volunteers each day. AM and PM shifts available on Friday, Saturday and Monday. PM shift only on Sunday.
