The Rhinelander Area Community Garden (RACG) operates seasonally and grows up to 5,000 pounds of fresh, nutritious produce for RAFP each year.
RACG hosts The Grow Box Project. This is an annual event that provides RAFP customers with the tools needed to grow veggies at home. Customers are able to sign up to receive a planter, soil, amendments, and plant starts at the beginning of the growing season. In addition, RACG offers plant starts to all customers as available.
Volunteers are always appreciated to continue this valuable effort. No experience necessary!
Volunteer Opportunities include:
- Till and plant (spring)
- Weed the garden
- Harvest produce
- Wash, package, and transport produce to the pantry
- Host the RACG Farmer's Market table during Pantry hours
