Help feed families in need throughout St. Louis! Midtown Community Services’ City Greens Community Garden provides fresh produce at or below cost to local residents through City Greens Market in The Grove neighborhood. In addition, we provide supplement food boxes for the elderly and disabled with free fruits and vegetables, help our neighbors plant their own garden plots, and provide educational workshops to children in St. Louis.

We are looking for volunteers who can help us basic garden maintenance, including planting, weeding and harvesting. For those who are handy with woodwork, we can also use helping building garden beds and hoop houses. Volunteer hours are flexible to meet your busy schedule - volunteer one hour now and then or join us for a full day of work. With your help, we can ensure our neighbors in an urban food desert have access to fresh, healthy food throughout the year at little to no cost to their families.
