New Greenhouse

Whether it be helping to construct our new greenhouse, or planting seedlings for the two plant sales we have in early spring and early summer, volunteers play a critical role in making Helfand Farm Community Gardens the great place that it is.


Soup Kitchen Garden

Helfand Farm Community Gardens contributes hundreds of pounds of fresh produce to soup kitchens in the area every year.  Volunteers are an important part of making that happen.

Whether you are a first-time gardener or following a lifelong passion, working on the Soup Kitchen Garden is a great opportunity to learn and practice organic gardening.  Helfand Soup Kitchen Garden uses organic, small-scale techniques that are directly transferable to your own garden.

Community Herb Garden

Helfand Farm has an herb garden that is free and open to all members of our Community Gardens.  Volunteers are always needed to plant, weed, fertilize, and water.
