Community Services Unlimited, a non-profit organization seeks volunteers help to upkeep its three mini urban farms in South LA. It doesn’t matter if you have volunteered before with CSU, or you are interested for the first time, we are asking for your support. For new volunteers the first half hour of the sessions described below will consist of an orientation, during which we will familiarize you with what we do, the location you are working at, and how your efforts connect to our vision for a local food system in South LA.
