      • HELP WANTED: Master Gardener to volunteer to help a non-profit social services agency, The Center for Family Services, start a vegetable garden to provide sustenance for the families who are staying at our homeless shelter. We especially want to involve the resident children in the garden, by giving them the opportunity to plant seeds and help care for the garden as the plants grow. We already have 4 raised beds that are ready to go. We also have an irrigation system and tools, and there is a donor who is providing transplants and a soil enrichment supplement. The garden is on the grounds of Pat Reeves Village, a program of The Center, that provides shelter, food, counseling and specialized programs to help these families get back on their feet. Both The Center and Pat Reeves Village are located in West Palm Beach. What we are seeking is a Master Gardener who can give us counsel, who can interact with the children and maybe teach a class or two. Again, we are located in West Palm Beach. I am here Monday through Thursday, from 9:00am to 2:00pm. My name is Jessie Tirsch and my number here is 561-616-1222 x269. You can also reach me on my cell phone at 561-523-1886.
