Gardening

10-2 Saturdays

Reservoir Community Farm

Come help us prep materials and build gardens at people’s homes. You don’t need any special skills, just show up ready to get dirty!
But if you do have special skills, there are some we could use! Are you good at gardening? Building? Speaking Spanish? Could you bring a truck, or tools such as saws and drills?  RSVP to bridgeportmutualaid@gmail.com.

About Bridgeport Mutual Aid

Bridgeport Mutual Aid formed in March 2020 in response to the pandemic with a mission to foster robust and sustainable social ecosystems based on solidarity, in which neighbors help each other, are empowered with information, and have knowledge of and access to resources.

In collaboration with Bridgeport Rescue Mission, The Diaper Bank of CT, and many dedicated volunteers, BMA made nearly 10,000 grocery and deliveries in its first year. In 2021 BMA will also continue the home gardening program that in its first season helped over forty households grow food at home in raised beds and container gardens. In Spring 2021 BMA launched Fridgeport, a series of free community fridges and pantries around the city. The first one opened May 1st 2021 as a collaboration with Kingdom Builders Impact Ministry.
