Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

What a great idea: Foodies volunteering for a good cause. Get a little dirt under your fingernails, enjoy good company, and you'll even get fed.

This Saturday, from 8 a.m. to noon, the local Slow Food convivium will join others around the country for a "Dig In!," where they'll "break ground and break bread" in the spirit of community building.

The day's project is a school garden at Hidden Hills Elementary School, where there's a lot to be done to prepare for fall plantings. Lend a hand, and then enjoy a lunch buffet with other volunteers. Whether you feel like pulling weeds, sweeping, cleaning, making repairs, or helping to make lunch, the group would welcome the extra help. Check out the above website for more info about volunteer duties.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
