Thank You to Thomas Jefferson University

We're blessed have a strong corps of volunteers that come every week to help out with gardens and support youth with afterschool homework help and other projects. This past weekend a student group of Thomas Jefferson University students volunteered their time to help out in Las Parcelas garden.

If you are interested in volunteering with us whether as an individual or as a group, please send us an email at
