Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We place innovative indoor hydroponic growing systems into food deserts and other food-challenged locations, that enable anyone - of any age - from any background - of any mobility or skill sets - to grow organic food year-round to feed themselves, their families, and their communities.
World Hunger Team is currently operating a 3,000 square foot conventional garden at "The Branch of Nashville", a food pantry and ESL training site in Antioch, TN that assists over 400 needy families per month.
In-kind volunteers are needed to manage the outdoor garden this summer and into the fall. Later in the year, we will need volunteers to tend to the plants in an indoor hydroponic garden we will be building at the site.
Botanists and master gardeners are also sought, as we are constantly testing heirloom and hybrid seeds to maximize food production. We also seek to grow foods that are preferred and sought after by our constituents. For example, collard greens are in high demand in primarily African-American communities. We have found a variety of collard that grows exceptionally well, and is very tasty when picked as young leaves. The plants continue to produce month-after-month, and grow easily year-round so this crop can be enjoyed on an ongoing basis.
