40-60 volunteers needed

Project description:

The Suga’ Cane Community Garden was established in Sept. 2017 (as part of United Way’s Day of Caring Project) to expand Green Tech’s Teaching Urban Farming, Forestry, and Aquaponics (TUFFA) program in North Sacramento, Del Paso Heights. The garden currently consists of a fruit orchard, a berry patch, CA native plants, sugar cane, and seasonal crops. The site serves as a job training and education center for Green Tech students. We seek to increase the garden signage and plant identification for increased awareness of what plants are growing in the garden. Volunteers will participate in a special garden art and cafe party to help us continue to beautify the garden by planting fall crops and herbs, caring for fruit trees and berries. We will create signs and paint plant identification labels to assist visitors to learn about the varieties growing in the garden. We will also showcase some simple teas that can be made from fresh garden herbs such as mint, lemon balm, and other herbs. Additional activities will include starting a variety of fall fruit and veggie seedlings together.
