Located at the Hunger Task Force Farm, the School Garden needs seasonal volunteers to help with day-to-day care including weeding, planting, tending and assisting with field trips. With the 28-bed School Garden, Hunger Task Force provides nutrition education to thousands of local students through the Farm-To-School program.
With the help of farmers and volunteers, students learn about growing food in the School Garden and follow fruits and vegetables from planting to harvesting – produce grown in the garden is used in healthy meals in the demonstration kitchen.
