There are several community gardens around Southeast Seattle that need extra attention during the busy growing season.  Please join Rainier Valley Eats! in tending to these gardens — get some sun, make new friends, and enjoy some gardening!  You can also learn about community-based organic food production and sustainable landscape management during these hands on, drop-in events.  No gardening experience necessary — everyone is welcome!  Volunteer work parties are scheduled at the following sites:
