Community Kitchen Gardening

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden http:///www.lewisginter.org/

Be a Farmer for the day! Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden grows vegetables for FeedMore's Community Kitchen. The project occurs through mid-November (weather permitting), volunteers are needed to assist with: Planting, mulching, weeding, harvesting, and prepping beds. The Community Kitchen Garden covers one third of an acre with a goal of collecting more than 10,000 pounds of fresh produce by the end of the growing season.

Dress for working in the sun and bring bottled water to stay hydrated. Closed toe shoes and gardening gloves are required and wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty! Minimum age to volunteer alone: 18. Minimum age to volunteer with an adult: 13. Note: Our normal volunteer application and interview are not required for this project.

Weather:
If it's raining the morning of any work session, that session will be cancelled.

Parking:
Enter the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden main gate and proceed along the serpentine driveway past all the initial parking lots and buildings. Continue through a partial barricade, past the Conservatory (on your right). Turn right just past the small, old brick house into the gravel parking lot.

This opportunity is a referral and is managed by Lewis Ginter directly. All volunteers who plan to attend must sign up, either as an individual, or via the team functionality. This includes youth.  To learn more about our Team Functionality, please view our Volunteer With a Group page, under Ways to Volunteer.
