Sacramento Tree Foundation- Help Us Build a Suga’ Cane Community Garden!
Saturday, Sept. 23, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.


20-25 volunteers needed

Project description:

In partnership with the Sacramento Tree Foundation, the Del Paso Heights Growers’ Alliance and Green Technical Education & Employment seek to establish a Teaching Urban Farming, Forestry, and Aquaponics (TUFFA) Training Center in Del Paso Heights. Currently, Green Tech operates the TUFFA Training Center in South Sacramento in South Oak Park, but there is a need to provide job training and urban farming education in North Sacramento too. This project would convert a barren lot into a fully-functioning, producing community garden — called “Suga’ Cane Community Garden — with staple crops such as suger cane and fruit trees. An additional component of the project will include the planting and maintenance of shade trees. The services and activities offered will be provided in a home-like setting in the community. This collaboration is committed to promoting equity and justice in disadvantaged communities.
