Hunger Action Month Way of the Day: Volunteer in the Teaching Garden
September 28, 2010 § Leave a comment
The CAFB Teaching Garden grows a variety of vegetables and herbs, and distributes the produce to our Partner Agencies and CHOICES Nutrition Education program.
The mission of the CAFB Teaching Garden is to teach our Partner Agencies how to grow their own food, and for them to teach their clients to grow their own food so more people have access to fresh, healthy produce.
We need assistance from expert or novice gardeners planting, watering, weeding and feeding our 19 vegetable garden beds year-long. We also offer opportunities for you to develop your own creative teaching and leadership projects to engage the community using the CAFB Teaching Garden. Watch a video of our basil harvest.
