Volunteer: Sweetgrass Garden

Organization Name Sweetgrass Garden
Organization Mission The mission of Sweetgrass Garden 501(c)3 is to provide food for the poor and the hungry. In our four years of operation we have provided hundreds of pounds of produce to local food pantries and outreach services. The majority of our donations of fresh produce have gone to the Lowcountry Food Bank to serve children in Title 1 schools hot meals during summer school and afternoon programs. We have provided thousands of pounds of produce to this end. Now we would like to expand our efforts to more directly serve the needs of the hungry on Johns Island and Wadmalaw Island.

Volunteers needed to do the following: Each Saturday morning from about 8:30AM until noon, we plant, fertilize, compost, weed, and pick produce. Depending on the season, we may mow the lawn, prune blueberry bushes, rake the pecan tree leaves, or tend the honeybees in our hives. No need to call ahead, just show up. You will find Dale or Jennifer there organizing the crew. If you decide to join us of a morning, please wear sturdy shoes and socks, work gloves and a hat! You can call me, if you wish, on my mobile at 843-270-0889. I hope to see you there! Dale
