Saturday, December 9: Volunteer Work Party in Berkeley

Come help our school garden grow! The Edible Schoolyard garden at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in Berkeley supports the academic, social and emotional growth of our students. The one acre space includes mature fruit trees, annual vegetable crops, chickens, and more.

Garden tasks include weeding, watering, and planting. We are busy preparing the garden for winter and can use your help mulching, weeding and putting our perennial plants to bed for the season. These tasks will aid in the long-term health of our teaching garden and position the garden for a productive and bountiful spring.
