Volunteers needed today for Gold Hill Food Share Garden

ACCESS is seeking volunteers for its Gold Hill Food Share Garden, which produces fruits and vegetables shared by needy families and volunteers. Local residents interested in volunteering are encouraged to attend a garden kickoff meeting from 10 to 11 a.m. today at the garden site, 100 Lampman Road, Gold Hill.

Volunteers will also have the opportunity to begin preliminary work in the garden following the planning meeting. The ACCESS Food Share Garden in Gold Hill is one of five throughout Jackson County organized by ACCESS and operated by volunteers.

Last year, ACCESS Food Share Gardens in Central Point, Gold Hill, Rogue River, Medford, the OSU Research & Extension Center and the VA-SORCC produced more than 57,900 pounds of fresh produce.

To volunteer at any of the ACCESS Food Share Gardens through October, contact Nan King of ACCESS, at 541-779-6691, extension 309, or by email at freshaccess@accesshelps.org
