Description
Join a team helping someone with limited access to good food start growing some of what they eat!


Green Corn Project is an Austin non-profit that educates Central Texans on organic vegetable gardening. Come learn how to install and maintain an organic vegetable garden or share your knowledge by working with a team of volunteers to install or replant a garden for an individual or organization with limited access to good, nutritious food. We meet at a central location off of Rosewood Ave. where we gather our supplies, discuss the day's activities and then divide into teams and drive or carpool to the individual garden sites.

When you arrive, check-in and get a name tag at the table and someone will help you find a task like bagging compost, sorting plants, or organizing our tools. Once everything is ready, we'll discuss the sites for the day, divide into teams, and drive to the individual gardens (carpooling is encouraged). No experience is needed as each team will have an experienced dig-in leader. Please wear closed toed shoes and bring gardening gloves, hat, water, and sunscreen - we'll supply the tools, materials, and knowledge.

If you're representing a group larger than 3, please contact us through our website prior to registering. For groups under 3, please a note to the note field on the registration form.

We'll send a reminder email a few days before the event.
