Welcome to Wagner Farm Arboretum

Gardening at Wagner Farm? Looking for a service project?

Giving Garden Project: GToGive D1446

The Giving Gardener’s Project extends the gift of food to area Food Banks and Soup Kitchens by growing produce at the Wagner Farm Arboretum Garden. The project is seeking volunteers for the 2014 season. The garden plots are getting prepared for planting. Come help us get things ready. Email [email protected] to volunteer.

If you, your family or friends have a little time and a little energy this season and want to make a difference in other people’s lives, join the rest of the team tend the vegetable gardens, plant seedlings, harvest the bounty,  or support the project in other ways. You can participate on your own schedule starting in the Spring for as little as 1 hour, or as often as you can throughout this gardening season. This is a great way to earn service hours!
