Whole Foods Market - The Edible Schoolyard (Kids’ Day of Service)
Sunday, September 8, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun fall volunteer project at The Edible Schoolyard garden. The Edible Schoolyard garden's purpose is to extend the students' curriculum beyond the classroom to the outdoors where the natural world becomes the textbook.
We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help prepare the garden for fall with our community partners at The Edible Schoolyard and IDEAS. 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!
