People's Victory Garden Program
We kicked off our 2014 programs in the garden at Lakeside Park at the Gardens at Lake Merritt. This is the location of three (3) of our People's Victory Gardens. And, we are planting at the Telegraph Center location. We invite you to come out to help grow your food - if you're new to gardening; we'll teach you. We are seeking volunteer garden coordinators to work at one to four of our gardens.
Victory Garden School Program
300 students at Franklin Elementary School have already been in the garden sprucing up, building a composting area, and placing mulch in the garden pathways. We are seeking qualified volunteer candidates for Garden Educators and Assistants. Contact Us if you're interested. If you have some occasional time, we would love for you to volunteer at our Community Work Days. Sign up for our newsletter so you don't miss an opportunity.
