Volunteer opportunity this summer; help with Indigenous gardening

SURJ-NJ has been supporting the Indigenous gardening network for the past 3 summers. We’re looking for some additional volunteers to join us this year. The commitment is pretty minimal – only about 1/2 hour to an hour a week to water/weed – but it’s an opportunity to be part of important anti-racism work. It’s a gift that Indigenous people, such as the Ramapough, are willing to let white people help with gardening, given our history of violence. This is a kid-friendly activity, and a great way to teach your families about sustainability. If you’re interested, contact ashley.denegre@rutgers.edu .
