Did you know that you can harvest the Whittier Greenleaf Garden at any time?


The garden this summer has  ton of edibles ranging from a strawberry patch, potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, carrots, lettuces, squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, herbs, and salads galore!


To keep the garden bounty going  we need summer volunteers to help maintain the garden. We are asking for 2-3 families to take a week during the summer running from Sunday to Saturday. If you sign up for a week, we encourage you to grab a friend to help out too! Gardening and harvesting are always better when you collaborate with friends.  During your week, you will be responsible for watering, weeding, thinning, staking, AND harvesting!

Whittier Garden was vandalized over the weekend of July 26th.  We need the entire community to make sure our garden is looked out for.  See something, do something.
