Beverly Hills, CA
Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun fall volunteer project at the Beverly Hills Greystone Mansion Community Demonstration Garden
We're excited to roll up our sleeves and work with the community to help prepare the garden for winter. 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 kids, teens, the Beverly Hills community and Whole Foods Market team members to partner together in service to our community. We'll have plenty of tasks for everyone from 2 to 92+.
To culminate the event, we will offer a build-your-own salad-bar for kids and grown-ups, including all the fixings. Join us in modeling the fun of "eating a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation! Please join us for this fun-filled afternoon of service and inspiration as we celebrate healthy communities and healthy eating together at one of the most beautiful locations in Beverly Hills!
Thank you again and look forward to seeing you soon!
