Weed ‘N’ Feeds

In an effort to promote community service and to help our staff maintain the garden, YGP hosts Weed ‘N’ Feed nights.  At a Weed ‘N’ Feed, anyone (community members or visitors of all ages) can come help weed in the garden for a few hours, and in exchange, YGP prepares a nutritious meal with freshly harvested garden ingredients for volunteers to enjoy. Weed ‘N’ Feeds are a great way to learn about gardening & to socialize with fellow community members.
