Hi there,

Thank you for stopping by to check out the Farms to Grow, Inc Urban Garden Project volunteer opportunity in Richmond, CA. We need your support!

Join us on 1st Saturdays to assist with growing food for the community. Great if you have gardening skills, however, no experience is necessary. Either way, you will have the opportunity to learn from a Master Gardener with deep connections and first-hand experience with nature. Volunteers will share the intent to grow and provide fresh, readily available, and nutrient-dense food options for the North Richmond community. The collective will receive valuable skills and knowledge in planting, irrigation, composting, soil fertility, harvesting, and seed saving.

The Urban Garden Project takes place every 2nd Saturday, 9 am -1 pm in Richmond, CA.

I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Elaine
