Coming Together in the Gardens Week of 8-7-2015
Volunteering is an opportunity to learn new skills and to interact with people and communities that otherwise you may never encounter. At Everybody Grows, we regularly work at our nursing home and fire station inspiration gardens with groups of volunteers. For some of our volunteers, working in our gardens is their first experience growing food. Other volunteers bring many gardening ideas and experiences to share, and we love to get their input and feedback.
At Stoddard Baptist Nursing Home this past week, we harvested from the garden and served a tasting session to the residents so everyone there could enjoy the food they planted and helped to grow.
At the fire stations, firefighters joined us to plant spinach, lettuce, beets, and other cold-resistant crops for the fall.
Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers that have come out to support our inspiration gardens across the city. We truly enjoy growing food and sharing our work with each of you. If you are interested in volunteering, go to everybodygrows.org/volunteer. We always welcome any new volunteers.
