    Dig with Pride! 

    Our community service program demonstrates a commitment to Milwaukee residents by providing meaningful opportunities in the city.  It is dirty work but it is also rewarding work. 

    In order to gain appropriate credit for your hours, we ask that you are prepared for physical tasks associated with farming, dress appropriate for outdoor work, and bring any forms that you may need signed.  Additional advice, there are no bathrooms on site and it would be helpful if you bring your own filled re-usable water bottle and snacks.
