Volunteer in the Garden

Our gardens rely 100 percent on volunteers for planting, harvesting, and keeping the gardens and grounds healthy and productive.

We take care of planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, and maintaining our gardens. All fresh produce grown in the gardens is donated to the Family Connection Food Pantry.
