Event Details

Dig In! 
Join Us In The Garden
On September 25th
For A Volunteer Work Day
 
Slow Food chapters across the nation are joining together for 
a national service day on September 25th.  

Here in the East Bay, we are working with the Ecology Center to bring volunteers to six nearby community and school gardens.  Come along with some of your neighbors and build a fence or a chicken coop, paint a shed, plant some seedlings, clear some weeds and harvest.  At the end of the work day, we will gather to share a drink and a bite to eat with other Slow Food and community members who volunteered around town. 
For more information about the gardens and the work to be done, please see below, then reserve your space on the volunteer team at the garden of your choice.
