There are now two (that is, 2!) different ways you and your group or family or self can serve at The Christ Church Garden –
Option 1) The traditional way – you either sign up by commenting on the fall schedule post or emailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . Then you show up when you want, do the work that the garden requires that week (I’ll let you know what) and then go to brunch or lunch or just about your merry way. This way of volunteering in the garden is fast, easy, fun and has proven very accommodating to several groups. Our garden is located at 1702 Woodland Avenue Austin, TX 78741.
But some of you have requested that there be more connection with the main Genesis Garden / Mobile Loaves and Fishes groups as well as connection with the homeless and formerly homeless we serve. For those that are looking for more, we give you –
Option 2)! First, just like option 1 you sign up with Christ Church Garden by either commenting on the fall schedule post or emailing me directly at email@example.com . Then you –
- Go to http://mlf.org/community-first/volunteersgg/, scroll down until you see “Farm Development”.
- You click “sign up” for your date and when the sign up page comes up, there is a comment box. In that box, put that you are coming from Christ Church Garden and what time you expect to arrive (They ask that you arrive prior to 9:30 am). Also, give them your cell so they can contact you if anything changes.
- Their garden address is 5800 Johnny Morris Austin, TX 78724
So, after working at the Christ Church garden, you head over to the main Genesis Garden and work there. Awesome, huh? But wait, there’s more! After working at the main Genesis Garden, you gather for a community brunch provided onsite with the Genesis Garden team and other volunteers. You work, you serve, you break bread. Sounds Christ like, right? That’s because it is.
