Get your hands dirty while helping out the community! Community Harvest Project (CHP) is working to build an engaged and healthier community by bringing volunteers together to grow fresh fruits and vegetables for hunger relief. CHP is the largest nongovernmental source of fresh produce for hunger relief in Worcester County.
CHP gives everyone a chance to experience the value of agriculture and a new respect for fruits and veggies! Our volunteers work outside, rain or shine, since hunger doesn't stop because it's raining. Depending on the time of the year, our volunteers assist in the greenhouse planting seeds, planting seedlings, tending, harvesting, washing, and boxing produce.
This is a great place where children can learn at a young age the value of helping their community solve a local problem. Individual volunteers and families can stop by for our drop-in hours: Monday-Saturday from May-August, between the hours of 9am and noon. Swing by and help out for as long as you are able!
No gardening experience is necessary - staff, team leaders, and other volunteers will be on site to get you started! Feel free to bring your friends or family and spend the morning making a difference. Children and adults of all ages are welcome, but if they are under 16 they need to be accompanied by an adult.
