Dana Sherman answered yes 2017-06-21 12:55:39 -0700Q: Are you willing to volunteer with LAGG at a minimum of two Dig-ins and/or Community Outreach Events?
Grow Your Own Food
Garden applicants must be a south Los Angeles resident and interested in an edible garden that is visible to the general public.
To date, LAGG has installed over 37 edible gardens through out our service area of south Los Angeles. A LAGG coordinator will guide you through every step of the planning process of what we call a "Dig-in", or in other words, a garden party. You invite your family, friends and neighbors.
We bring the tools and additional volunteers and spend approximately 5 hours on a Saturday morning converting your front lawn into an edible garden. Our program is a fine example of building intentional communities, reimaging neighborhoods and encourages sustainable living practices and so much more. Garden recipients participate in LAGG's harvest exchange, sustainable living workshops, and other gardening projects. And, as a recipient of our program, LAGG offers continuing gardening support and education to help you keep your garden thriving season after season.
Please fill out this simple survey and a Dig-in coordinator will contact you with more details about LAGG and how we'll help you grow vegetables, culinary herbs and native plants in your own front yard. To be selected, you must have a suitable location and commit your time and resources to maintaining the garden.

Volunteer with LA Green Grounds!
Becoming a LAGG volunteer is very rewarding. We could not do this inspirational work without our volunteers. LAGG is all volunteer-run. We have a variety of ways you can support our mission to have healthy, organic food in South Los Angeles.
Please complete our survey below so we can match your interests, capabilities and time available to LAGG needs. We will contact you when we find a possible assignment match for you to confirm. (Please don't "just show up" for the protection and productivity of our volunteers.)
Here are just some examples:
You live locally, want to get your hands in the dirt, and can commit to an extended period of time on an ongoing basis:
BE AN LAGG GARDEN KEEPER 1X/week.
Help tend LAGG's Teaching Garden in South Los Angeles (near Jefferson & La Cienega). Our current schedule is Tuesday and Saturday mornings, but this may be expanded TBD. If you are a beginner, no worries. Learn by doing. But we do need a commitment for at least 3 months. Please let us know which mornings you are available.
You live locally, want to get your hands in the dirt, but can do this one time only, or once in a while.
VOLUNTEER AT A DIG-IN.
Our Dig-ins are fun for the entire family. In fact, our master gardeners will teach you all there is to know about starting an edible garden. A typically Dig-in is held on a Saturday from 9:30am-3:30pm. We bring the garden tools and the Dig-in host provides water and a healthy lunch. All-in-all, its a good thyme. By signing up to volunteer, you'll receive notifications 2 weeks prior to every Dig-in event. Volunteer for as many Dig-is as you wish. But RSVP right away as Dig-ins fill up quickly. After you RSVP you will receive details you'll need about the event.
From time-to-time, we have events that volunteers can help support. For example, at events in our garden for Earth Day and Beans & Rice celebrations. If you are a master gardener, you can assist in our classes to teach others to grow edible gardens.
You love our mission but cannot come to our location or events most of the time.
HELP SUPPORT US BEHIND THE SCENES!
Many opportunities for this: photography, videography, writing, social media posting, administration, carpentry, plumbing...
