Community Service Opportunities

The community garden is a great way to be involved in your community! Service events for schools and other organizations provide the opportunity to share your gifts for a greater good. The garden provides fresh local food to the local community through food cupboards, farm markets, and volunteers. The garden also provides fun hands-on education about nature and gardening. Service events can range from 2 hours to a full day. To arrange an event please contact Sr. Ana Dura at 215-914-4109.
