Kroc Center seeking volunteers to help harvest garden

Spring is knocking on the door and now it is time for you to discover your green thumb!

The Salvation Army Kroc Center is looking for volunteers to cultivate its community garden.

In partnership with the Mississippi Farm to School Network, the Kroc Center is aiming to teach members of the community the benefits of eating locally grown food and tips to maintain a garden.

There is no limit to how many crops volunteers can harvest and the garden is 100 percent organic.

Marketing Coordinator Morgan Shiyou explains how the community garden combats against food insecurities and the impact of growing your own crops. “Our guests and our members can have hands-on learning. Everyday they can come out to the garden and see their fruits and vegetables and herbs growing and see what they did, make what they planted make a difference.”

The community garden is free and available to guests and members every Friday at 10 a.m. Contact the Kroc Center welcome desk to find out how to become a volunteer.
