Event Overview

Blodgett Urban Gardens is a community urban garden serving the residents of Third Ward. The garden is committed to sustainable practices, healthy living and community education in an area that struggles with food insecurity. The facility covers 2.3 acres and hopes to be fully cultivated and operational by 2021. Our team will help Blodgett Urban Gardens achieve their long term goal by installing a security fence, building and installing additional garden beds and seating, revitalizing the garden’s signage and more.

COVID-19 Safety: In accordance with state and federal guidance to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, all projects will have a cap on volunteers. Social distancing and sanitation will be a priority, and face masks will be required.

Please note: If you are feeling sick, have had any COVID symptoms which include fever, cough and shortness of breath in the past 14 days, or identify as having a higher risk for severe illness please stay home and be safe. While we encourage participation for those that are low-risk and in good health, we ask everyone, irrespective of age and health status, to adopt extra safety measures. We look forward to seeing you healthy at a future project.

The Mission Continues will ensure the safety of our volunteers, partners and the community by implementing safety protocols and procedures. Please contact Elizabeth Barlow at ebarlow@missioncontinues.org if you have any questions.
