Whole Foods Market - UHSTL Downtown Community Garden (Kid's Day of Service)
Saturday, September 14, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (CDT)
Saint Louis, MO
Calling all kids and families; join us for a fun volunteer project at Urban Harvest STL’s Downtown Community Garden.
We are excited to roll up our sleeves and help prepare this urban garden for fall. 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 is our goal to make your experience fun, uplifting, and kid-friendly. This is an opportunity for adults, teens, and kids to partner together in service to our community. We will have plenty of tasks and games on-site for little ones whose attention may wander. The best part is being all together!
Also, we will have a magical (free) build-your-own salad-bar with all the fixings to help model the fun of "eating a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kid’s 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!
