About

LOVE TO GARDEN AND WANT TO SHARE THAT PASSION AND SKILL WITH KIDS?

We have schools and teachers who want gardens and need help either during the school day... and help to maintain them over the summer months. These children live in food deserts and growing food is a way to ensure they get to eat fresh!

If you can share your knowledge of gardening or environmenal education with eager students in Brownsville, BK, Crown Heights or Flatbush, contact us.

Even two hours a week is helpful. Give us your schedule. But we are most looking for right now is:

GARDENING TIMES

Mondays - 8:30 - 12:30

Thursdays - 8:30 am - 2 pm

If you have other times or can only do a few hours in these time slots, let us know.

Also -

HIP2B HEALTHY MARKETS

if you want to help us run Hip2B Healthy Markets, where kids sell healthy snacks at school, please let us know. They usually run early morning before 8:30 am or 2-4 pm. KIds can sell their plants at the market, along with fun, fresh snacks like bags of strawberries, etc. Everything is 50 cents.

WHAT TO DO - SEND RESUME OR BIO TO INFO@SEEDSINTHEMIDDLE.ORG and tell us what you want to do and what skills you have, and times you can commit

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A SKILLED GARDENER - JUST LIKE TO HELP KIDS, AND LEARN WITH US.

We're also creating a widespread healthy food box program in central Brooklyn. If you'd like to help farm or distribute or do anything related to this, let us know. We welcome healthy cooking demos, also.

We need folks interested in education, nutrition, cooking, growing and more, or just want to do something good to address health and food disparities hurting underserved kids!

All skills welcome. Just be reliable and a self-starter.

Please send us a resume or tell us something about yourself. We are excited to hear from you. Tell us what you'd like to do and what experience you have and why you want to help.

Send to info@seedsinthemiddle.org.

We take all time commiments. Just make sure you commit to only what you can do!

Yes, we do internships and community service letters.
