Volunteer with our Food Pantry Garden Program

UVLT’s food pantry gardens produce fruits and vegetables for distribution to hunger relief programs throughout the Upper Valley. In 2021, we grew more than 2.5 tons of food that provided  22,000 servings of healthy produce for people in need.

Brookmead Food Pantry Garden -Norwich, VT

The one-acre Brookmead garden is located at 701 Turnpike Road in Norwich, VT. We grow a variety of mainly winter storage crops that are donated to Willing Hands. Community work days at the Brookmead garden are generally Tuesday evenings from 3 – 7pm during the growing season, but are subject to some change and variation. Volunteers help with all aspects of garden work under the supervision of UVLT staff, including: soil preparation; planting; weeding; watering; and, harvesting.

Community volunteer work days are typically Thursdays from 3 – 7pm during the growing season, but are subject to some change and variation.
