We offer a variety of ways to get involved:

Tuesdays 10:30am – 12:30pm
Volunteers will work along this year’s city farm school apprentices in growing our thousands and thousands of vegetable, herb and flower seedlings for the spring. Tasks will involve mixing soil, seeding trays, potting up plants and some fertility and pest management. This is a messy job, so people should wear clothing they don’t mind getting wet and dirty.
One HydroFlora’s many goals is to make the knowledge of hydroponics and sustainable urban farming accessible as possible to the Concordia community. We meet every Sunday at 5:30 in the Concordia Greenhouse to host hands on hydroponic workshops. We also utilize this time to discuss future projects and opportunities for students around campus and abroad.
