Adopt-a-Garden 

On Saturday, September 15 from 8:30am to 11:30am, Urban Harvest is hosting volunteer days and transplant demonstrations as a part of our new Adopt-a-Garden program! Adopt-a-Garden connects gardens in underserved areas with community partners to revitalize the garden, build relationships in the neighborhood, and support local growers and community members. Through three events spread throughout the year, Adopt-a-Garden builds garden sustainability through consistent programming, activities, and education.

Join us to volunteer at a garden and learn how to start brassica transplants, this September. Come grow with us! RAIN OR SHINE.
