Growing Food, Growing Communities

Registration will re-open in January 2019.

Connect with food and gardening in your community! The Department of Parks and Recreation and the Office of the State Superintendent of Education are partnering to better connect residents to new food growing opportunities and to encourage residents to grow their own food.

There are two ways to volunteer…

1. Provide access for community members to garden, grow, or maintain one of these types of spaces (Registration deadline was Feb. 20):

a. A gardening space in your home yard that is available for others to grow food
b. A community garden plot that you would like help maintaining
c. A school garden that needs maintenance over the summer months

2. Help to grow food in one of the spaces described above (the registration deadline is April 20, participants will be matched with gardens on a rolling basis)

If you would like to participate in this program, please sign-up online or contact [email protected].
