Join your community in helping to grow organic food for local food banks. These weekly gardening sessions are free and open to all however, volunteers under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Great opportunity for high school students to complete volunteer hours. Volunteers are welcome to attend one or multiple gardening sessions. Each week will focus on different sustainable urban gardening, food security and other fun topics.
