Full position descriptions

​​​​​​​The Green Bay Garden Blitz is a community volunteer effort.

Each year over 100 volunteers have plowed the ground and planted seeds of good food for good health for so many Green Bay families.


122 volunteers installed 108 garden boxes in 2016, making a total of 349 Blitz gardens installed in  the Green Bay area since 2014.  We have installed over 95 of these gardens with social agencies that serve low-income populations,  educational institutions, libraries, schools, and low-income individuals including:  Boys & Girls Club, Veteran’s Manor, UWGB, Brown County Central Library Children’s Garden, Manna For Life Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen,  Golden House, Clarity Care, NeighborWorks, low-income housing sites and 16 local elementary and high schools.

We could not do it without you.
