Description

We are looking for volunteers to help build an Outdoor Garden Classroom!! On December 15, 2018, Green Our Planet is organizing its second Great Garden Build (the first was May 18th, 2018) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Volunteers from across Las Vegas will come together to build six school gardens and create a lasting impact on the city in just one day.

We will meet at the build site on school grounds. It should be very obvious with already-built brick beds, big piles of gravel and soil. You can either park nearby on the street if it looks like there is an open gate, or in the school parking lot. Volunteers will be assisting with spreading DG (decomposed granite), filling beds with soil, planting fruit trees and spreading mulch.

All volunteers must check-in and sign a waiver on site. Volunteers under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign for them. All ages are welcome! Volunteers under 15 must have an adult present on site.

Be sure to bring water and wear closed-toe shoes, sun protection, and work clothes. We will provide gloves and tools. Details and your day-of contact will be emailed out prior to the build!
