Garden BLITZ on the Burn Scar

The Butte County Local Food Network is sponsoring the Garden BLITZ On The Burn Scar, August 22-30. What is a Garden BLITZ? People apply for scholarship for a 4x4' raised bed garden. Volunteers come to their yards and install them. They get the garden box, soil, 6 plants, mulch and critter protection consisting of hardware cloth below and a chicken wire "lid" above. They they grow and eat tasty food and the whole community wins with more food security based on locally grown, fresh healthy food. Although not required, it’s best if you get a team of 3-4 folks (with one person who has a truck) for installations so you know you are COVID- Bubble Safe. You can also sign up by yourself or just one friend. Installations are August 22, 23, 29 and 30. Half shifts (two gardens at 2.5ish hours) and Full Shifts (3-4 gardens at 3.5-5ish hours) are available. All shifts start in the morning to avoid the August Heat. Sign up yourself or your team here. https://bclocalfood.org/blitz-on-the-burn-scar-volunteer-sign-up/

In periods of disaster, Caring Choices works with its public and private community partner agencies deploying volunteers to other agencies. In addition, volunteers assist the center with communications, donation management, tracking resources, and general administration.

Volunteering is a valuable part of every healthy community. Volunteers come from all segments of society and often provide essential services. Everyone has the potential to contribute strength and resources in times of emergency. There are valuable and appropriate roles for unaffiliated spontaneous volunteers in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.





Caring Choices Partners with Stonewall Alliance Center and Home and Healthcare Management to offer free HIV testing in Butte County. Free confidential testing is offered every Tuesday from 9:00 am -1:00 pm. at our Chico home office and Saturdays at Stonewall Alliance Center.
