  • GROW THE GARDEN

    Enjoy the great outdoors and get your hands dirty! Seniors in Minneapolis & Suburban Hennepin County need your help to maintain their flower garden or vegetable patch. Help make someone’s Grandma or Grandpa proud of their yard. Assist one-time or adopt a garden for the season until it freezes. Work with a partner and you can take turns gardening. Family teams welcome, youth must be age 7 or older and supervised by an adult. The resident will offer a happy smile.

    Exact location TBD in Minneapolis & Hennepin County Suburbs, depends upon where the senior citizen resides. One-time unpaid volunteer opportunities are also available both indoors and outdoors. Please contact Jeanne the HOME Program, Volunteer Coordinator at scsvolunteer@seniorcommunity.org or call 952-767-7894 for more information. Our website is www.seniorcommunity.org  Thank you!
