Event Details

Calling all kids and families, please join us and North Atlanta Master Gardeners, on Saturday, September 14, from 9AM-11AM at Orchard Hill (at Bulloch Hall) for a gardening volunteer service project in the Cottage Garden; then from 11AM-Noon for a celebratory lunch in the 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 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,

Tracy Madigan, Marketing Team Leader
