The weather is forecasted to warm up by Tuesday, March 22 when the WIC garden springs to life for another growing season. The public is invited to volunteer at the kickoff event from 7:30 to 9 a.m. when county staff will plant potatoes, onions, broccoli, cabbage, spinach and more!
All Kansas WIC clients are encouraged to volunteer in the garden. WIC clients who volunteer in the garden will have first priority to the produce that is harvested from the garden. All other produce will be made available at the Olathe WIC office. WIC volunteers will not only have access to freshly harvested produce, but will also learn skills to grow vegetables in their own gardens and feed their families for years to come.
The garden is located at 11875 S. Sunset Drive in Olathe (north side of the Health Services Building). Tools and gloves are provided.
If you enjoy gardening, want to learn how to grow your own fresh fruits and vegetable and you like to help people in the community, we hope to see you there on March 22. Volunteers are needed every Tuesday from 7:30-9:30 a.m. during the growing season (April-October).
