The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, in partnership with the Food Bank of Delaware and many others in the community, will “Plant a Garden for the Community” on our Newark farm on Friday, May 11th (10 am to 5 pm) and Saturday, May 12th (9 am to 2 pm). In the event of rain, we will plant the Garden on May 18th and 19th. This is the 4th year for our Garden – to date we have donated over 10 tons of fresh produce grown in the Garden to the Food Bank to help them meet their mission – a community without hunger – by providing Delaware families with fresh, local food.
We need and welcome your help this year as we plant this 15,000 square foot garden on our farm and donate all food produced in the garden to the Food Bank (please visit our website for more details –http://ag.udel.edu/communitygarden). If you would like to join our volunteer team and help with the Garden throughout the year, click on the “Get Involved” tab on our website.
If you can provide a few hours to help plant our “Garden for the Community,” please join us in front of the Wilson Farmhouse (directly behind the Girl Scouts facility on Route 896; see website for directions) on May 11th or May 12th. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us which date we can expect you. Tools/supplies will be provided but feel free to bring your own.
