Event Details

 

Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun fall volunteer project at the Celebration Community Farm, a Denver Urbiculture garden.

We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help prepare the garden for winter with our partners at the school. This will be a family-friendly, 2-hour project with tasks for everyone ages 2 and up!

Below, please find a volunteer job description and a list of items that may be helpful to bring on the day of the project. It's our goal to make your experience fun, uplifting, and kid-friendly. This is an opportunity for customers, team members, and kids to partner together in service to our community. We'll have plenty of tasks and games on-site for little ones whose attention may wander. The best part is being all together!

Also, we'll have a magical build-your-own salad-bar for kids and grown-ups, plus all the fixings. Join us in modeling the fun of "eating a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation! Please join us for a fun-filled day of service and inspiration as we celebrate healthy communities and healthy eating together!

Thank you again and look forward to seeing you soon!

Cheers,
