Would You Like to be Involved with the Garden of Hope?

The Yorktown Garden of Hope is a non-profit, community-driven organic garden that supplies fresh produce to local food pantries (including our own!), as well as offering organic gardening training.  It is located at Willow Park, Yorktown, on the corner of Tulip and Curry streets. Note that there is a FPCY sign in front of “our rows” at the far end of the garden.

The Garden of Hope is open to volunteers!  Do you have 15 minutes and want to water the green beans?  Do you have a strong teenager that wants to push the mower? Do you want to learn more about vegetable gardening? A variety of tasks are available!  Go to our Sign Up Genius site to see the activities and dates available and check it out.  This is also a great opportunity for youth to get service hours.

Any questions?  Ready to volunteer?  Please reach out to Dawna Dennis at 206-947-7173 or dawnadennis@gmail.com.  Please connect!  You can also join the Realm group. We will add you to the list and get you the information you need to get started!

The next work day is June 4 from 10am-5pm.  There should be another shipment of plants to put in the ground in our few empty rows.  Should be pretty easy work!  There is always more to do around the garden – so if anyone wants there will be a fencing team working, and there will be other small plants to put into other rows in the garden.
