Get Dirty With Us!!!

Can we convince you to “get dirty” for the Co-Op with us? 

The Bucks County Opportunity Council (BCOC) needs help harvesting (in the early days it may be planting/weeding/staking, etc) at DelVal College for the Food Pantry this summer.

The BCOC needs at least ten volunteers each week from May into September at the Hope of the Harvest Charitable Garden right here in Doylestown, on the Delaware Valley College campus.  The Charitable Garden will help meet a critical need for fresh food in the emergency food network right here in Bucks County.  No experience necessary! Come once or all summer!  Depending on the week you volunteer, activities will include: weeding, staking, twining, planting, harvesting, and packing food.   

This is a wonderful opportunity for the Food Co-Op to help a local organization… and while we continue to look for a “store” for the Co-Op this organization can help us accomplish our mission of getting REAL food to our community. 

Harvest Dates are:  

June 12

June 19

June 26

July 3

July 10

July 17 

Please consider joining us and donating a few hours each week.  Bring your friends or come along and make some new ones.

We'd love it if you would RSVP to us, contacting Susan@doylestown.coop or by phone at 215-882-3399.  Susan will coordinate with Eileen at the BCOC.  If you would prefer to work directly with the BCOC, visit their Volunteer Hub, and log on there If you do not yet have an account, you can register and create an account.  Once that is complete, you can sign up to one of the events at the garden (or any other BCOC Volunteer activity). You will receive an email confirmation from.  

How to Dress & What to Bring:
We ask volunteers to wear clothes and shoes that they feel comfortable working and getting dirty in. Long pants and closed-toed shoes are preferred. Bring gardening gloves if you have them. You will be working in the sun for several hours so volunteers should be prepared with hats, sunscreen, water, snacks, etc.
                        
Where to go:
The group will meet at the “Market at Del Val,” 2100 Lower State Road, Doylestown, PA. You can park in the parking lot, and we will meet up to walk to the garden, which is just up the hill. Plan to arrive at 8:45 so that we can make introductions before you head off to the garden with Scott Smith, the Horticulture Production Manager.
 
Here are two great pictures from the first Harvest!
