Volunteers Needed For ACCESS Garden

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — One ACCESS food share garden’s season is starting earlier than ever and that means more volunteers are needed.

At the OSU Research and Extension Center Garden in Central Point, volunteers have already planted red and white onions and garlic. This is about a month earlier than the gardening season typically starts for that garden.

ACCESS is expanding its growing season to provide fresh produce for families in need for a longer time. With more gardening comes the need for more volunteers.

“Even if you have no gardening experience, we’re a great bunch of people to work with, we have smiles on our face, and we feel really commited to feeding the hungry of the valley,” said Co-farm Manager Paula Hefter

The food will go to help the more than 100,000 locals using emergency food recipients. You can volunteer by contacting ACCESS.
