There is ample street parking by the school. The garden is located at the back of the school, past the playground. You can enter the school through the parking lot with the GSF banner out front. Follow the chalk signs through the metal door, around the cafeteria, and past the basketball hoops to the garden., Volunteers should wear close toe shoes and loose, comfy clothes that are school appropriate. They encourage volunteers to bring their own water bottle and sunscreen. They will provide light refreshments and all necessary tools and supplies.
