Weekly Spring Garden programs begin on Monday, March 6th, 2017
– this means a lot of good things, including weekly volunteer opportunities!
If you haven’t volunteered with us before, please email our Volunteer Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org and
we’ll get you plugged in with the garden or activity that’s right for you and your schedule.
Every hour you’re able to contribute as a volunteer – whether it’s on a weekly, monthly, or even an
annual basis – makes a difference in the lives of kids and families in our community.
The first Volunteer Training of 2017 is coming up next month in February.
School Gardens staff members are looking forward to meeting new
friends, as well as welcoming back familiar ones.
Two identical sessions are offered:
– Friday, February 17th, 9:00 to noon –
– Saturday, February 18th, 9:00 to noon –
Register by sending an email to ian@LCschoolgardens.org and
specifying which day you plan to attend.
But here’s the thing: we couldn’t have planted anything, or grown beautiful and nourishing produce with (and for) our community without seeds.
We are so thankful again this year to the farmers, growers, and companies
who provided us with the ability to grow our gardens during 2016. We count ourselves as tremendously fortunate to witness thousands of students experiencing the magic and wonder of seeds for the first time – and it is all because of the generosity of the people mentioned below.
To apply, or for more information about AmeriCorps:
Each week produce is harvested from 16 gardens for Wednesday sales at Northlake.
Student farmers are eager to sell you their berries, tomatoes, peas, greens, herbs, and cut flowers; as the summer progresses we’ll have peppers, figs, grapes, squash, cucumbers, plums, and more.
Low prices –
Beautiful produce –
Top-notch customer service
Starts June 22!

Please RSVP to ian@LCschoolgardens.org or 431-6725
We hope you’ll join us to celebrate and be appreciated for all that you give to your community.
We’re coming up on the final week of Spring programs in School Gardens, which also means that Summer Garden programs will be starting soon.
We are also in need of families to adopt gardens for a week this summer. Adopting a garden means that you help take care of it for a week (or more!) – watering every few days (depending on the temperature), and harvesting what is ripe and ready to be picked. Gardening expertise or experience is not necessary! Once you have signed up we will review watering and harvesting with you before your scheduled week arrives.
There are so many different opportunities to volunteer or participate this summer – see the schedule below and contact info@LCschoolgardens.org if you still need more information. All garden activities and programs are FREE.
