The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We deep into the 2018 season at The Giving Fields, our 10-acre community farm located in Melbourne, Kentucky. Volunteers are needed to help plant fresh produce, weed and do other gardening maintenance, as well as harvesting as soon as the plants are ready! The harvested fresh produce will be given to our Northern Kentucky community partners who provide emergency food to the families in their network.
No previous experience or knowledge of gardening or farming is necessary. We'll teach you! Come play in the dirt with us and make an impact! Volunteers can help Tuesday - Saturday mornings, March - October.
Individuals and Groups are welcome at the farm!
