Join Concrete Safaris for our Garden Volunteer Session to spruce up our gardens WHILE SOCAL DISTANCING! We will be doing a variety of garden maintenance activities that consist of repairing raised beds, shoveling topsoil, planting herbs, vegetables, fruits, and flowers, spreading mulch, picking up trash, weeding, and more. Dress in layers and bring a water bottle. Activities vary.

WHAT: Volunteers will help with garden maintenance activities at Mad Fun Farm such as spreading woodchips, shoveling compost, removing weeds, raking, trash removal, and more.

BRING WITH YOU: Please wear comfortable clothes, proper footwear, preferably work boots or sturdy sneakers, and bring a reusable water bottle. Food will not be provided, so bring a bagged lunch or order from one of East Harlem’s amazing local eateries. The event will take place rain or shine so please dress for the weather!
