In conjunction with Whole Foods Market and its Whole Kids Foundation back-to-school campaign, our fall Kids’ Day of Service Project will provide local families with a hands-on experience of volunteerism with The Learning Garden at Venice High School. Whole Foods Market is donating 10 tons of compost to The Learning Garden and we need your help prepping the garden for the fall and getting the compost placed throughout the garden.
Whole Foods Market is looking for 30 – 40 Venice, Santa Monica, and Mar Vista based Volunteers to help us with our garden build at the Learning Garden. This event is open families and kids ages 5+ and we encourage this project for educating children about the benefits of giving back.
The Learning Garden will provide all the equipment such as shovels and wheel barrels. We will end the garden build with a complimentary lunch, sponsored by Whole Foods Market. Please invite your friends, family, and co-workers!
What to Bring:
Hat or Visor
Sturdy closed toed shoes, tennis or hiking style shoes.
Where to Meet: The Learning Garden , Venice High School, 13000 Venice Blvd.
