There is a volunteer gardening crew at the Sunshine Care facility here in Poway and a backyard picking crew for the Poway and Rancho Bernardo areas. Volunteers are always welcome, especially during weekday hours. If you would like more information about the gardening and harvesting work or about the fundraiser, contact Jane Radatz at jradatz@att.net.  Fundraising flyer with event details.
