Thursday: You're Invited to Our Volunteer Cookout & Potluck

We're firing up the grill again. Invite your friends and neighbors to participate in a cookout and potluck and enjoy summer tunes.

Volunteer Cookout & Potluck — Thursday, Aug. 6, 6 – 8 p.m.
Burgers and hot dogs will be provided by Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden. To share a potluck dish with others, bring a fork-friendly appetizer, salad or side if your last name begins with A – R and a dessert if your last name begins with S – Z. Feel free to flavor with pickings from our Chinese-Italian kitchen garden. (No alcoholic beverages, please.)

For additional info or to help, please email

Volunteer Orientation, during Cookout & Potluck — Thursday, Aug. 6, 6 – 6:30 p.m.
Volunteers keep the Garden open for our community. The more volunteers there are, the more hours the Garden can be open. Volunteering is flexible and simply involves welcoming visitors for just ONE hour at a time. Some volunteers volunteer each week, and other less frequently. Become a volunteer.

If you would like to volunteer but cannot make these times, please email
