GSF hosts monthly Saturday workdays at the 24th Street school from 9am – noon. These days are a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people from all over the city and spend a morning outdoors helping create and maintain garden classrooms for students at underserved schools.
You don't need any experience to join in, just a love of being outside and getting dirty! Bring your shovels, gloves, sunscreen, some water and your favorite gardening tools down to the 24th Street Elementary School, where we'll build, plant, weed, water, mulch and more.
Snacks, drinks, fruit, or garden supplies are always welcome at the workdays. Please contact us if you are able to bring something.
For more details, or if you are interested in bringing anything, please contact:

From the I-10 Freeway: take the "Western Avenue" exit (3 miles west of downtown) and head south on Western. Take a right turn on 24th Street. The school is one block down on the right, and the parking lot entrance is just beyond the school. There is plenty of street parking as well.
