If you love to get down and dirty with shrubbery and go toe to toe with compost piles, then the Ethiopian and Eritrean Community Development Project could use your help. EECDP is looking for volunteers for its the Urban Garden Initiative, a plan to spruce up and prepare a local community garden plot for the growing season.
Food from the garden benefits Boise refugees and displaced community members. Volunteers reap benefits, too: Not only will they get to work the soil for a good cause, Ethiopian food and beverages will be provided as reward for a hard day's work.
Supplies are limited, so bring garden tools and gloves.
