Volunteer with IRI at Growing Home

Join IRI's volunteers to assist Growing Home in making their spaces more inviting! Volunteers will be building adult sized picnic benches, planter benches, planter boxes, and plywood murals, as well as weeding some of the lots. The completion of this work will directly benefit the youth volunteer/tour experience, as there will be much needed seating added to the learning garden and surrounding areas. In addition to completing beautification work, volunteers will also go on small group tours of the farm to learn about all the opportunities they provide for Englewood and see the impressive variety of veggies currently being grown and harvested.

Growing Home heavily values placemaking, but due to bandwidth of staff and participants, their site often goes without consistent beautification work beyond farming. A challenge they face is having seating for volunteers (such as you all!), as well as for tour and learning garden participants.
