Volunteer Registration: SAGE Garden MLK Day of Service Project

Please use this form to sign up for the MLK Day of Service project with SAGE Garden taking place on Saturday January 18th. Produce for the People garden grows fresh nutritious food for low-income individuals and agencies while providing opportunities for gardeners of all ages to grow, learn, and contribute to their community. Starker Arts Garden for Education is a unique community garden located in the Bruce Starker Arts Park. The food grown at SAGE donated to local food banks and soup kitchens–providing fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables to families in our community who need them most. Every year the garden supplies 3-4 TONS of organically-grown produce to agencies and families all over Corvallis. Community volunteers are the heart of the SAGE garden; over 500 people a year come help us farm this one-acre plot of city land.
