Garden Volunteer

“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!”

– Sitting Bull

Did you know there are 10 edible gardens at Pasadena Unified School District Schools that produce fruits and vegetables as part of the Farm to School Program? We need volunteer support to keep this community effort going.

PUSD gardens provide outdoor classroom space for students to learn and are managed by a full-time Master Gardener, who directly manages the work of our garden volunteers.

Produce grown in the organic school-community gardens is incorporated into school cafeteria offerings. Learn more.
