Summary

Do you have access to a greenhouse? Help the Bloom Community Farm by growing plant starts for the farm’s greenhouse.

Description

This spring, between March and June, gather your classmates and plant tomatoes, peppers, and other hot crops, as well as plant starts in a greenhouse for outdoor crops like lettuce, greens, and broccoli. These crops will grow all summer and provide food for the Hunger Coalition, which strives to end hunger in our community by providing wholesome food to those in need.
