McKinley Volunteers

McKinley Giving Garden Volunteers-2019

The McKinley Giving Garden is a partnership among many--The McKinley Foundation, McKinley Presbyterian Church, Presby Residence Hall, Faith in Place, the UI Extension...the list keeps growing. And do does our garden! We are growing produce for the clients of the Garden Hills Food Pantry and others in the community who have limited access to fresh produce.

How does this garden grow? With lots of love and labor from our friends and neighbors, and of course the wonders of nature. Throughout the summer months, we will meet in the garden on Monday evenings beginning at 6pm. We work until the work is done or until the sun goes down. Whichever comes first. We would love your help.

No gardening experience is necessary. Just a willingness to work outside for a couple hours. Each week we will have a volunteer captain on hand who will be able to provide instruction for each task that's needed that day. This is a great way to grow your own gardening skills while supporting a great cause. NOTE: We work until the work is done or the sun is down, whichever comes first. Some weeks we have more to do than in other weeks, so please be aware that we will occassionally finish before the end times listed here.

Location: McKinley Foundation Building, south side, Fifth and Daniel Streets, Champaign
