Gardening for Good Hoop House Helpers 2021

June 16 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm

Join us this summer to help Groundwork Milwaukee and the Maglio Urban Farm prepare garden beds, plant, water, and harvest fresh produce such as tomatoes, zucchini, beans, and kale that will be provided to shoppers at the Riverwest Food Pantry! Groundwork Milwaukee collaborates with Riverwest Food Pantry to provide just food systems in the Milwaukee area! They currently have 11 “hoop houses” ready to provide fresh local food to those in need!

Purpose: Kids will have the opportunity to get dirty, tend and explore the garden, and harvest food to donate to the Riverwest Food Pantry!

Impact: Enjoy a fun, hands on experience gardening while learning about the food insecurity in our local community.

Activities: Kids will be gardening inside the “hoop houses” planting, harvesting, weeding, moving soil, and all things related to general maintenance of the site.

When:  WEDNESDAY June 16: 5:00pm – 7:30pm 

Registration: Available Here 

Where: The “hoop houses” are located at the Maglio Tomato Building, 4287 N Port Washington Road, Milwaukee, WI 53212. Please park in the lot on the North side of the building and walk through the fence to the big “hoop houses.”
