About

Have a passion for gardening? Want to get outside and play in the dirt? Come help in our Harvest Garden program at EP!C!

We need help beginning in March in the greenhouse with planting and eventually move into the garden as spring progresses. You will work with our Harvest Department to complete various tasks for planting, transplanting and seeding. Later in the season we need lots of help with weeding the garden on a regular basis.

There are opportunities to help weekdays between 8:00-4:00 from March through mid-November. We can take individual volunteers as well as groups. You may come one time, or schedule regular times at any point during the season - whatever works best with your availability and interest!

Our Mission:
At EP!C we enrich the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. EP!C envisions a world where people with developmental disabilities are inspired, respected, engaged in community life, and empowered to achieve their personal best. EP!C envisions a world where families, guardians, and advocates have the knowledge, resources, and support they need to provide the best life for their loved ones with disabilities.
