I participated in the coolest volunteer project this weekend. My sister's church planted over 200 mobile gardens in the inner city.
We used garden socks (http://www.gardensocks.com/Directions.html )
Each recepient received 8 socks.
2 beefsteak tomato plants
1 red cherry tomato plant
1 yellow cherry tomato plant
2 spinach (seeds)
1 zucchini (seed)
1 wax pepper plant
1 bell pepper plant
2 basil plants
4 collards (seeds)
4 lettuce (seeds)
2 green bean (seeds)
They also got to keep the leftover green bean, lettuce and spinach seeds so they can re-plant for a second harvest, and a watering can. They also recived a cook book w/ recipes for their new fresh vegetables, and a growing guide.
The socks are really cool and will last for 2 years. There were 4 people in my team and we got 8 gardens delivered and planted in about 4 hours.
What types of volunteer activities do you enjoy?
