We couldn't do this work without you! We're an ALL volunteer nonprofit (Good Worx Inc.) serving Darien and neighboring communities. Consider joining our growing community!
Thanks for checking into how you can get involved in this rewarding community growing project. We're working together to raise awareness about food insecurity and the fact that many of our neighbors are struggling to access food on a regular basis, especially garden fresh food choices.
For our fifth growing season we have even more ways to get involved! You will now be able to consider helping at one of our many growing sites around the community or you might consider joining us to rescue food weekly.
As of June 1, we will have a Sunny Patch community garden space located close to you!
