Open Volunteer Days
Spring is here and we're ready to begin work in the gardens! We have expanded volunteer days this year to four Saturdays a month, divided between our two farms. Volunteer days are a great way to get to know our farms, meet the youth and gardeners involved in our project, and learn a little bit about sustainable urban agriculture. No registration is necessary, just come ready to work and get dirty.
UCC Youth Farm: First and Third Saturdays, 10AM-2PM
Schenck Avenue between New Lots and Livonia Avenues
Hands and Heart Garden: Second and Fourth Saturdays, 10AM-2PM
New Lots Avenue between Alabama and Georgia Avenues
