Hi there,

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

Join us on Tuesdays in Oakland to assist in growing food for the bay area. You will be learning from a friendly, warm and welcoming Master Gardener. No experience that's ok, just show up ready to learn and play in the dirt. We are preparing the garden beds for spring planting. Learn about the benefits of cover crops, the difference between planting a seed and planting a transplant, see how to setup irrigation lines and so much more.

The Urban Garden Project takes place every Tuesdays from 9:00 am -1:00 pm in Oakland.
I hope to hear from!

Cheers,

Elaine
