ORGANIZATION: CONVIVIUM URBAN FARMSTEAD

Image_202202141018

Convivium Urban Farmstead grows food on over 7,000 square feet of garden space. This food is used in a variety of ways towards supporting Convivium’s mission of "improving life through food." Some of the food is enjoyed in our restaurant or merchandise, where the proceeds go toward supporting our non-profit outreach programs. Some of the food is handed out as ingredients in our weekly free casserole program. And some of the food is picked by the general public as free, accessible, healthy produce.

Volunteer gardeners are an important part of the labor force that brings that food to life, gets it on to people’s plates, and helps fulfill Convivium’s mission.

A Garden Tender keeps Convivium’s gardens healthy, thriving, and productive. Garden Tenders work at recurring weekly volunteer sessions alongside a Garden Guru preparing beds, planting, mulching, watering, weeding, harvesting, and doing all the little things that help food to grow. Garden experience is beneficial but not as important as a willingness to learn and a desire to become part of the Convivium mission of improving life through food.
