Why should I get involved with the Emerson Avenue Community Garden?

You can make a difference.
Individuals make communities.  

Everyone has something to offer, be it volunteering at one of our monthly community work days, or creating a program like Story Time for toddlers or Guided Meditation that you can lead, or a myriad of other roles waiting for someone to fill. It can be as big a commitment as you want it to be. One thing is for sure, if you commit and act on it, you will reap more than you sow. And it you don't feel you can commit the time, make a monetary donation to one thing that you can be sure is bringing direct benefits to the community.

Ways to Help


Your donation allows us to run the garden. We are a 5013(c) non-profit and are run entirely by volunteers. Because of this, your donation is tax deductible. We accept donations via Paypal.
