Beaverton's Giving Gardens (age 0+) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

If you would like to work outside, get a little sun, and help needy families by growing organic vegetables, then we would love to have you come out and volunteer with us. Join our group of fun, family-friendly garden volunteers -- no experience required!

We are volunteering in Beaverton's Giving Gardens. All the food grown will be donated to Tualatin Valley Gleaners and St. Matthews Food Pantry.

Our Saturday shifts will be in the Kennedy Community Gardens, located on the corner of 103rd and Kennedy Streets behind Target. The 3 hour shifts will start at 10:30am and end at 1:30pm. If you need to leave earlier, please feel free to do so.  You will be able to get credit for the hours that you did volunteer.

We will be laying down paths, raking, planting vegetables and flowers, weeding and harvesting. Please bring some gloves and drinking water. The field does not have bathroom facilities, although Kennedy Park has a bathroom and drinking water. There are also some nearby retail stores where we can use the facilities as needed.

This is a family-friendly volunteer opportunity, so please feel free to bring the kids along for some great family fun!

If you have any questions about this project or the Tualatin Valley Gleaners, please contact Lisa McIntosh at 503-810-5472.  For more information visit our website http://www.tualatinvalleygleaners.org/.
