Grow2Give Work Day at NEIU Ground
May 5 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDTFree
Join us for our first Grow2Give work day at NEIU Ground! Grow2Give is our volunteer-run program growing fresh produce to share with others. The donations go to local food pantries or nutrition programs chosen by the community. The program addresses food security issues by introducing vulnerable populations to fresh produce. Volunteers have grown over six tons of food for our partners since 2010!
At NEIU Ground, our produce from the Grow2Give garden plots go to North Park Friendship Center. On Sunday, May 5th and again on Saturday, May 11th we’ll be prepping the plots and planting seeds and seedlings for this year’s harvest donations. Come anytime between noon and 2pm to help out.
You do not need to be a member of the community garden to help out!
Bring clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, water to drink, sun protection, and weather-appropriate clothing.
