InterGenerate is currently seeking volunteers who want to learn how to grow vegetables and serve the community at the same time. The organization builds and tends community gardens and then distributes the fresh produce to local people in need.
   
“We are planting throughout the spring and will be tending gardens, harvesting veggies and distributing fresh produce from the end of June through mid-October,” says Suzi Novak, vice president of InterGenerate. The pandemic has created a huge need for fresh food, which is not affordable to our least fortunate neighbors.”
  
InterGenerate’s community garden projects provide an opportunity to do something for others and learn a valuable life skill—all in the company of others with generous spirits, Novak says.
   
“Working with us will allow you to experience the joy of growing fresh vegetables, even if you’ve never done it before,” she says. “We schedule our garden work around our volunteers—we find times that are suitable for everyone, so we can enjoy both our work and each other.”
   
InterGenerate has built community gardens in Mount Kisco, Chappaqua, Millwood and Katonah. Each one offers individual plots for people in the community, and some also have more collaborative models, where people share the responsibility of gardening together.
   
“Providing food for families in need is a powerful way to feel like you are making the world a better place in some small way,” Novak says.
