Louis Nine House is a residential home in South Bronx for young adults who are homeless or aging out of the foster care system. 

Volunteers work alongside the staff and residents to plant and maintain the rooftop garden, planting flowers as well as vegetables and fruit for the tenants to eat in order to provide them with fresh, healthy, and seasonal foods.

A team leader will lead volunteers in planting and growing plants. No prior knowledge or experience gardening necessary.

*Must be 18+ years old
