Gardening at the Hoop Houses

July 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm

Join Kids Impact Community to help Groundwork Milwaukee prepare their gardens at the urban farm “hoop houses” in Glendale! Volunteers will cultivate, plant, water, and harvest fresh produce such as tomatoes, zucchini, beans, and kale that will be provided to shoppers at Kinship Community Food Center. Groundwork Milwaukee collaborates with Kinship Community Food Center to provide food systems in the Milwaukee area. There are currently 11 “hoop houses” ready to provide fresh local food to those in need!

Activities

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

Purpose

Kids will have the opportunity to get dirty, tend and explore the garden, and harvest food to donate to Kinship Community Food Center.

Impact

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

The “hoop houses” are located at the Maglio Tomato Building, 4287 N Port Washington Road, Milwaukee, WI 53212.
