Work Together Days

Join us in the Dig In! gardens where we grow and learn together. Work Together Days are when volunteers tend the garden, learn by working alongside each other, and connect with neighbors and new friends. Every age and skill level are welcome!

We host a Work Together Day on Thursday mornings between 9:30 AM- 12:30 PM at our garden on Blankenship Creek from April through October. We also host garden gatherings at different sites throughout the year. We ask folks to sign up before they show up so that we can be prepared to host Work Together Days.

Does your school, church, business, or community group want to volunteer in a beautiful setting and make a direct impact from your service? We would love to host your group to work and learn in the garden together. Contact us to learn more about opportunities for groups at Dig In!

Harvest Tables

Harvest Tables are events hosted by Dig In! where fresh food from our garden and others is shared and received without exchanging money.

What happens at Harvest Tables is very simple:

  • take what you need, leave enough for your neighbor
  • share what you can, there’s enough for everybody

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the set-up looked like a vegetable stand. In the 2021 season, Harvest Tables are being hosted as a drive-thru event where boxes of fresh produce are pre-packed with care and folks have opportunity to select extra veggies as available. We’re partnering with TRACTOR Food and Farms and Rec House to expand this community offering into “Harvest Share”, allowing us to purchase produce from farmers for the program.

Gardeners and farmers are invited to share the abundance from their fields at Harvest Tables. If you wish to share what you’ve grown, please be in touch!

We know how hard it is to grow food! Harvest Tables do not take the place of vegetable stands and farmer’s markets. We encourage everyone, whenever possible, to invest in the hard work of those in our community who grow food for their living.

Community Gatherings

We bring people together in the work and joy of growing, sharing, and eating food. From shelling beans to serving soup to celebrating summer, there’s always a reason to host a party at Dig In!. Annual gatherings hosted by Dig In! include our Spring Invitation in May and our Empty Bowls Supper in October, our annual fundraiser when we share delicious soups, breads, and desserts from local cooks and attendees take home bowls crafted by local potters. Though we’re limiting public gatherings for all of our safety, we look forward to when you can join us for a party!
