ECO: Straight 2 the Plate Planting

Healthy Day Partners is looking for volunteers to help with planting their Grab & Grow Gardens. Once seedlings sprout, they are transplanted into nursery pots that are packaged into small garden kits. The garden kits are distributed through hunger relief agencies throughout San Diego to help low-income, food insecure, and those hit hardest by the pandemic learn how to grow their own healthy food.

Safe distancing measures are put in place, and masks must be worn. Healthy Day Partners love their small but mighty family of volunteers!

  • Attire: Properly worn masks are required. Gloves are supplied, and gardening gloves can be brought by volunteers, or supplied.

  • Weather: This program operates at a limited capacity during inclement weather. Volunteers will be contacted by phone 24 hours prior to project start time.

  • Note: This project takes place in the backyard garden of a private home.
