Community Action: Porter Avenue Sharing Garden, Nelson Avenue Garden and Pumpkin Patch
The summer garden fellow will collaborate with staff of Community Action, including the VISTA staff person, to oversee the development and maintenance of the Porter Avenue Sharing Garden, the Nelson Avenue Pumpkin Patch and the new Nelson Avenue Garden. These gardens are part of a neighborhood revitalization effort in one of Beloit’s most challenged neighborhoods. The fellow will engage in basic garden maintenance and management, neighborhood engagement, volunteer coordination, and outreach.
