Starting each day at 9 a.m., organizers will be stationed at five core neighborhood parks, ready for a morning work shift aimed at cultivating beautiful garden spaces. In the evenings at 5 p.m., join us for a Social Hour and Garden Knowledge Share, where volunteers and community members can come together to exchange gardening tips and to socialize.

Volunteers will gather to help establish “collective gardens” in publicly accessible community spaces, fostering a sense of collective ownership and responsibility. Additionally, residents are encouraged to host gardens on their own properties, whether in provided container gardens or on small plots.

This week-long event is part of the Food Security & Healthy Eating Strategy Team’s efforts, facilitated by Sioux Falls Thrive, to ensure equitable and sustainable access to nutritious food in every neighborhood, with respect for diverse cultural practices.
