ECO: Garden Community Roots Farm
Activities will depend on what is happening at the farm seasonally and include prepping garden beds, harvesting produce, weeding, trimming shrubs, planting seeds, mulching, sorting seeds, watering plants, and installing irrigation. There are often build projects as well such as building garden beds, seedling tables, shaded awnings, creating community spaces, and much more. This is a great opportunity to be at the forefront of a locally grown, organic food movement that provides for food-insecure members of our community.
