Garden Volunteer

 

Volunteer at the garden

Soak up some sun, and get your hands dirty by helping us plant, weed, harvest and compost our garden plot. Our plot is part of a larger community garden called the Duncan Street Miracle Garden, located a few blocks away from our office in East Baltimore. We welcome individuals and groups of all ages. No previous experience necessary.

 

HOURS: Most Saturdays, 10am-12pm

 

To volunteer at the garden, contact Assistant Volunteer Manager Bintou Ouattara at bouattara@mfeast.org.

 

Grow a starter plant

Contribute to the Moveable Feast garden by growing a starter plant at home.

  1. Contact Laura Saunders to let her know you'll be growing a starter plant and to discuss which fruits or veggies to plant.
  2. Plant the herbs, vegetables or fruit seeds in a small container. Follow instructions on the seed packets. Please refrain from using chemical fertilizers.
  3. Send us photos of your starter plant to see it featured on our Facebook page.
  4. In May, after the last frost, set up a time to bring your plant to our office or to transplant it directly in the garden!

 

Donate supplies

We welcome donations of seed packets, gloves and other garden tools. See our wishlist for more ideas.

 

Where does the produce go?

All of the fruits and vegetables grown in our garden get incorporated into the nutritious meals we make for people living with HIV/AIDS, breast cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Learn more about our garden program here.
