USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is looking for volunteers to assist with the People’s Garden on Friday, April 1st, 2022! The project site is located outside of the USDA headquarters in Washington, DC and is easily accessible – only a block from the Metro! This initiative was started by our Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, during the Obama administration. Secretary Vilsack and the USDA team are now working to revitalize the People’s Garden to showcase what we do at USDA, raise awareness about sustainable agriculture practices, connect people with where their food comes from, and educate on protecting our environment and conserving resources. This fun volunteer opportunity is offered through NRCS Maryland’s Earth Team Volunteer Program. Please feel free to share this opportunity within your networks!
Please use this link to sign up for our April 1st session!
We have plenty of other volunteer days to choose from, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me at Laura.Eddy@usda.gov if you are interested in learning more!
