RVK Volunteers at the Albina Cooperative Garden

On July 27th, RVK volunteered at the Albina Cooperative Garden - the largest urban farm in the inner Portland area. Their mission is to grow food to share with co-op members, community members, and especially those in need. The farm is also used to educate schools and others about the importance of growing healthy food and other plants for healthy habitats. The RVK team learned about organic gardening, composting, pollinator habitat, and pruning while giving back to the local community. Volunteers did a variety of activities, all of which are needed to grow organic food in a farm setting. In particular, weeding, spreading compost/woodchips, composting, digging, planting, watering, transplanting, harvesting, and pruning.
