Garden helpers available for a day

Does your community garden need some TLC? Could your school garden use a kick-start? Or would you like to volunteer to help?

Bill Maynard, of the Sacramento Area Community Garden Coalition, has scores of AmeriCorps volunteers at his disposal for Saturday, Oct. 27. That's National Make a Difference Day.

And what a difference these volunteers can make. Last year, the group tackled dozens of projects in the greater Sacramento area.

"We're now looking for projects within 45 miles of Sacramento," Maynard said. "Community gardens, school gardens, green-space projects – anything garden-related.

"We are also looking for volunteers to help us on this day so we can tackle more projects," he added. "It's a a good way for students to get community service hours."
