As an important part of the community, East Lake Foundation encourages community involvement and health eating habits. Volunteers will be gaining access to fresh local organic produce, learning to grow their own sustainable fruits and vegetables, and will receive the opportunity to increase their physical fitness. Be a part of the revitalization and beautification of East Atlanta. We invite you to Connect + Learn + Grow. Saturday morning projects vary from garden cleanup, mulching, watering, seasonal planting, and aesthetic additions to the learning garden site. Please make sure and arrive 15 minutes early. This project site is located in Atlanta, GA. Court-ordered volunteers are permitted to serve. The minimum age to volunteer with adult supervision is 5.
