Build a Garden Box!

Join AARP Vermont and HANDS to build standing raised-bed garden boxes. These garden boxes will be donated to garden sites in Burlington that are focused on food security for older adults. These practical solutions to gardening reduce the back-bending effort needed for planting and harvesting, and are great for children, people with disabilities, and older adults.

In this four-hour workshop at the Generator Makerspace, you and a partner will work together to build a garden box which will then be housed on-site at HANDS (Helping and Nurturing Diverse Seniors), a small non-profit whose mission is to provide food for older adults (50 years+) in Vermont. Your garden box will help to grow food for hundreds of Vermonters in need!

Please note that this workshop will be done in pairs, so please bring a partner or you will be paired up upon arrival.
