Get Involved!

With the organization now participating in the development and management of three spaces, we are working towards providing monthly newsletter format updates to the entire garden email list, with more specific garden lists getting updates for workdays and planning weekly or as needed.

Below are a few of the committees and groups we have to join. All are welcome.

Community Committee

 

Our multi-organizational Community Committee leads the discussion around around our mission, vision, and values - using lenses for racial equity, inclusivity, food resilience, and sovereignty to continually identify and remove barriers, to welcome everyone to our shared spaces, and to explore learning opportunities and mutual aid opportunities with other groups and organizations.

Riverwalk Gardeners

This committee is dedicated to all things Riverwalk Garden. They will help us to plan, map, rotate, plant, and manage our Riverwalk garden.

Distribution Team

This team is comprised of a subset of our Community Committee. They are specialists in connecting with our community to solicit crop requests, manage food distribution relationships, and ensures our harvests are eaten, and our community is invited to share ownership of the community supply chain.

 

We are currently creating lists for possible sources and destinations for food harvests, not just from HUGs and our future greenhouse nursery of seedlings, but also from our partners and neighbor farms, gardens, and groceries.
