Volunteer in the Garden

Opportunities to volunteer in the garden are available for all ages and depend on the growing season.

General garden work days are scheduled (weather permitting) on Thursdays and Saturdays from 9AM -11:30AM. No need to bring tools. Show up when you can and work as long as you desire. Interested volunteers may select the day/time that best meets their schedules. Instructions will be given to volunteers, but on-site supervision generally will not be provided. 

During winter, occasional opportunities to volunteer in the garden will be available for individuals and families.

Partnership with Holly Springs Garden Club

Volunteers in the Holly Springs Garden Club devote their time and expertise in planning, planting, maintaining, and harvesting the vegetable garden on the Food Cupboard property. This partnership produces hundreds and sometimes thousands of pounds of fresh food over the course of a summer for our local families in need.
