In honor of Earth Day, the Spring Dig-in brings together community members who believe in the power of growing food to make meaningful change.
Get together with your friends, family, and coworkers and learn grassroots strategies, make connections, and help build a movement.
Spring Dig-in teams not only help build backyard gardens but raise funds to ensure that every family in the Home Gardens program has 3 years of seeds, plant starts, tools, education, and mentoring in order to be successful in growing food at home.
