Information on a wonderful program from Floreciente Community Garden!!


Last year, thanks to the support of our community partners and dedicated volunteers, the Floreciente Community Garden achieved something amazing! Together, we grew, harvested, and distributed over 1,500 lbs. of free, fresh, and locally grown produce to more than 150 families.

This year, we're setting our sights even higher, aiming to double our impact and reach a goal of 3,000 lbs. of produce distributed to 300 families throughout the upcoming growing season.

To achieve this goal, we need your help. We're calling on volunteers like you to join us in the Grow a Row campaign. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or simply passionate about making a difference, there's a place for you!

Sign up to volunteer for the Grow a Row campaign today by signing up here. Upon signing up, you will receive an email detailing location and drop-off times.
