The VCAAA’s Senior Garden is a working garden located adjacent to FOOD Share. It is an ongoing collaboration between Ventura County Area Agency on Aging, the Ventrua County Probation office, and FOOD Share. This garden provides fresh fruits and vegetables for the Senior Nutrition Program and to FOOD Share partner agencies. We are always looking for volunteers to help Bob with all aspects of maintaining this beautiful garden.
Tasks include: Hand weeding, weeding with a hoe, harvesting vegetable, planting seed, installing irrigation.
Not open on Holidays or if it is raining
Usually open M&Th 8am-Noon
For individuals : The first step is attending a 30 minute group volunteer orientation. Volunteer orientation consists of a tour of our facilities and receiving your FOOD Share name badge.
Volunteer orientations are in a group setting and take place by appointment only by signing up for an orientation via our website https://foodshare.com/volunteer/
