ORGANIZATION: Farm Discovery at Live Earth

Eat a Rainbow

Help us put some finishing touches on our educational garden! Farm Discovery has been working on updating our teaching garden, filling it in with medicinal and culinary herbs and other plants for our visiting children to explore and taste. Because of COVD-19 we have not been able to support the same size staff that we would normally and are relying on the generous help of volunteers to complete this project. Now we are reaching perhaps the most important part of the process that will tie everything together, the pathways!

We are looking for an individual or a couple with a truck that would be willing to help us by loading up with mulch at one of our locations and moving it down the street to our newly updated garden space. Ideally this can be done at least a couple times because of the amount of mulch we will need to cover the pathways.

We are hoping to have the garden as close to finished by the time we start our annual Summer Camp in June. If this sounds like a project for you or someone you know, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
