Blackhawk Garden is an Affiliated Garden with Madison Area Food Pantry Gardens, Inc. Produce harvested from this site is delivered to Community Action Coalition which distributes to local area food pantries.
No prior gardening experience is required to volunteer. And no sign-up is necessary; simply sign a volunteer waiver when you arrive at the Garden and join the fun.
Volunteers are guided by a garden coordinator in carrying out various gardening tasks, such as planting, weeding and harvesting. No gardening experience is necessary.
Additional work sessions throughout the week can be arranged for groups.
It’s usually good to bring a water bottle and sunscreen with you when you come, especially as we move into the summer months. Many volunteers like to bring their own gardening gloves, too; although, we do have some pairs available for anyone who would like to use them. It’s not necessary to bring your own tools; we provide any tools needed.
