South Bay Family Volunteering
Organized by HandsOn Bay Area and sponsored by The Walt Disney Company, this day of service helps families strengthen bonds to their communities and each other. This year, HandsOn Bay Area is partnering with Collective Roots, and activities will include installing a trellis system, building a small compost box, and painting terracotta pots. With only one grocery store for a population of 30,000 people, much of East Palo Alto is considered a Low Access Community by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Collective Roots serves as an important space for community members to learn about growing food, as well as providing garden plots for East Palo Alto residents who don't have access to gardening space.
