Event description

Description

Join fellow Bay Area B Corps with nonprofit Literacy for Environmental Justice at the Candlestick Point Native Plant Nursery for a fun day of plant volunteerism the Friday before Earth Day!

Literacy for Environmental Justice's mission is to promote ecological health, environmental stewardship, and community development in Southeast San Francisco by creating urban greening, eco-literacy, community stewardship and workforce development opportunities that directly engage and support local residents in securing a healthier future. We'll be transplanting, seed cleaning, weeding their Native Plant Demonstration Garden and doing some light weight carpentry. All plants that you will be helping care for are grown form seed collected from remnant wild, native populations right here in San Francisco and are used for habitat restoration projects public parks. Help foster urban nature and bridge the divide between our species and all the rest that we share our home with - learn more about their work here!

Schedule: 1:00 - 4:00pm
We'll start with a short presentation by Literacy for Environmental Justice then get to work from approximately 1:15pm to 4:00pm. We'll have some snacks for you there and then we can head to a local bar for happy hour if there is enough interest.

Logistics: Please wear gardening clothes including closed-toe shoes and bring your own reusable water bottle, hat, sunscreen and layers. Parking is available on the property. Carpooling is encouraged!

Capacity: We are limited to a total of 40 volunteers in the nursery so we must ask each organization to limit the number of volunteers to 10 per B Corp. This will allow us to have more B Corps represented. If you have more than 10 interested attendees, please email Tracy and we may be able to add more people if the event is not at capacity.

Let’s show our community spirit and B of Service!
