We are looking for ongoing volunteers to help with weeding, turning compost, planting, harvesting, moving mulch, clearing brush and other regular garden needs. We also have a need for help collecting eggs, checking on the chickens for food and water. No skills or experience needed. We have building/carpentry needs for anyone willing to help build a kids play house, pavilion, amphitheater and more. We have a need for people with expert skills such as Master Gardeners, landscape architects and marketing. We have fundraising events and need help filling volunteer spots for selling pumpkins at the pumpkin patch or serving food at the BBQ event, etc. We provide education to the community and would love to offer more classes on cooking, food preservation, eco-crafts and more. We currently need help with someone knowing how to install chainlink fencing. If you have a skill, its likely we need it. If you are good at just helping anywhere needed - we definitely need you. We are 100% volunteer run with no employees. We are a few folks doing a lot of work and need help.

Mission Statement

The Mission of Our Giving Garden is to interrupt hunger, cultivate greenspaces, educate on sustainable and environmentally sound gardening and skills and build community in Mableton and surrounding neighborhoods.

Description

The Giving Garden was started in the end of 2016 by a group of friends who wanted to feed their neighborhood on a plot of land owned by the neighboring church. Since then, we have purchased the land, become a registered 501c3 nonprofit farm, and donated almost 9,000 pounds of fresh produce and eggs. In addition, we provide regular classes on various sustainable practices, camps, afterschool programs and host an award winning forest preschool on site. We also offer a little free pantry and little free pet pantry at the entrance to our garden that is open to anyone, at any time. Our goal is to lengthen the walking trail, expand our chicken run and increase our flock to donate more eggs, improve our property to make it a nicer space for the community. This is our Garden... your Garden!
