Garden Volunteer Sessions
Our gardens at Jefferson and Washington Houses are open to masked individuals to help grow food for our neighbors. East Harlem was considered a food desert long before the pandemic, and residents need fresh, free, organic produce more than ever. Families have already planted carrots, arugula, potatoes, and other delicious crops. You can help grow and distribute food, and maintain these educational gardens. Individuals may volunteer once or regularly. Adults must register separately. When young people (ages 0 - 17) attend, a parent or guardian must register the child and a designated adult must be present for the entire event. To obtain our signature for community service, be present from event start to end and let CS staff know before the event starts on that day.
