Ferguson Community Gardens & Ferguson Farmer’s Market

  1. Thanks for the comment. There are many different opportunities to get involved and help. Please review the list as well as the programs and send an email to fyi@fergusoncity.com to let us know which one(s) seem like a good fit.


  2. Thanks for the comment. Fourteen years of age is perfectly fine for our volunteer opportunities. She can help with any of the ones listed on the volunteer pages .. including the community gardens, helping with the Farmer’s Market, or being a part of the crew that helps with beautifying the different neighborhoods. More opportunities will be listed soon … thanks again!

  3. Hello,
    My name is Romare Antrobus and I am a student and the current President of the Black Student Union organization (BSU) at Lawrence University (located in Appleton, WI). Every Spring break (March 20th to March 26th) we try to partake in volunteering programs, and this year we are interested in volunteering in Ferguson. I was wondering if this Initiative can allow us to do so and help the Ferguson community during this time period.
