Weed ‘N’ Feeds

Weed ‘N’ Feeds are our flagship volunteer event, and have been running every growing season for over 18 years! YGP hosts these volunteer nights in an effort to promote community service, foster connection and friendship, and help our staff maintain the garden.  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.
