Volunteer Opportunity

Location: Lansing, MI
Deadline: June 30, 2017

The Hunter Park GardenHouse is project of Allen Neighborhood Center, a 501(c)(3) organization in Lansing, Michigan. The GardenHouse serves as a demonstration site and hub for year-round garden education. Neighbors volunteer to grow food, flowers, and community; and youth develop job and life skills in service to the neighborhood.
 
Since 2008, the Hunter Park GardenHouse has empowered neighbors to grow, prepare, and eat healthy food to better their health and become more connected with the community. We are open 6 days a week, and offer a wide assortment of programs. GardenHouse volunteer shifts are held Monday-Friday, 9:30am-12pm & 5pm-7:30pm, Saturday 9:30am-12pm.
 
Volunteers will be serving on site, learning about sustainable and urban agriculture through hands-on tasks. These include: planting, harvesting (for our weekly CSA veggie box), watering, weeding, and more.
 
If anyone is interested, please fill out our volunteer interest form. If you have any questions, contact Sam, the volunteer coordinator, at volunteer@allenneighborhoodcenter.org or 517-999-3919.
