Event Details

Calling all kids and families!  Please join us for a fun fall volunteer project at Alice’s Garden, in collaboration with the Student Conservation Association!

We can’t wait to get digging and help Alice’s Garden prepare their garden for the fall season. This will be a family-friendly event, with activities for all gardeners ages 10 and up. The first 20 kids to sign up will receive their very own gardening kit to take home!

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. The best part is being all together!

Join us after the activity for a healthy lunch of colorful fruits and veggies and learn how to build and “eat a rainbow” in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation! We hope you can join us for a fun and fulfilling day out in the sun, as we give back to our earth and our communities!

 

Thank you, we look forward to seeing you in the garden!

 

Regards,
