Hi,

Thank you for stopping by to check out the Farms to Grow, Inc Urban Garden Project volunteer opportunity.

Site Lead
Do you have the skillset to design a multi-functional edible herbs and flower Urban Garden? VIsualize a layout, measure, create beds, plant, control weeds, and harvest? You are perfect to assist us with an request to assist a church with revamping their garden. Would you like to take it on? You would of course have team support.

Support
We currently have a couple of projects that need support on a variety of gardening tasks, including but not limited to soil preparation, weeding, transplanting starter plants into the ground, sowing seeds, harvesting fruits and vegetables, and collecting honey. Volunteers have the privilege of working alongside skilled growers to learn from their immense knowledge of urban farming.

The Urban Garden Project takes place every Wednesday from 9:30am -1:30 pm in Oakland.

In gratitude,

Elaine
