The Shalom Park Community Garden is a critical hub for environmental educational efforts, and is proving to be a powerful tool for engaging community members. The garden is free and open to all.
In 2018, over 60 volunteers helped to maintain the garden; the garden produced over 200 lbs of food donated to local charities; and over 600 children visited the garden for educational programs.
In order for the Shalom Park Community Garden to grow and thrive, we depend on funding to support Garden Coordinator salary, plant and ground cover purchases, and garden maintenance.
Students age 12-18! Are you ready to DIG into a volunteer service project? Do you love being OUTSIDE? Don’t mind getting your hands DIRTY?
The Shalom Green Horticultural Education Program is for you!
Over the course of this 12-week program, student participants will work under the guidance of Bobbie Mabe, coordinator of the Shalom Park Community Garden, to learn the how's and why's of gardening, the importance of environmental stewardship, and how to research and implement a horticultural-based service project that addresses a need within the community.
