We went to see Grassroots Garden, where Young Son has put in many, many volunteer hours. A lot was going on, though it was very quiet and peaceful. They provide over 50,000 pounds a year of fresh local food to the hungry through Food for Lane County. Here's what they say about themselves on their website:
May through October, regular volunteer hours are Tuesday through Saturday 9 am - 2 pm. November through April, regular volunteer hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday 9am - 2pm.
The GrassRoots Garden is a 2.5 acre garden that includes a City of Eugene compost demonstration site and a full outdoor kitchen. FFLC staff and OSU Lane County Extension Master Gardeners offer workshops to the public and maintain the garden with help from thousands of children, youth and adult volunteers.
