If you are aching to give back in your community, this opportunity will not disappoint you. Rise early, bring your own bike, and ride alongside 2-4 people from garden to garden to harvest organic produce grown by people participating in PGS.

You can volunteer as little as one time and as many as 10 distribution days through the Summer, July to September. We meet on Saturday mornings, and bike alongside the Little Free Farmers Market bike mobile to gather food to give away. This is a great opportunity to share with the community the importance of food sovereignty, how to grow organic food at home, and all the different ways in which PGS can support this goal.

Distributions are at different locations in the neighborhood each week. Visit our Get Involved page to sign up to volunteer.
