Announcing a new Meetup for Good Deeds Society!
What: Gardening volunteers needed at Community Initiatives for Children! (Minneapolis)
When: Saturday, September 4, 2010 10:00 AM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Volunteers are needed to assist with a twice-monthly gardening project at Community Initiatives for Children, a grassroots organization which serves as a resource for low-income parents in their efforts to become self-sufficient, and to prepare their children for success in school and life. Using effective and proven programs that are holistic and community based, Community Initiatives for Children strives to address the needs of the changing and diverse families who are negatively impacted by school and state budget cuts in Minneapolis neighborhoods, and this project represents a unique opportunity to contribute to these efforts. Keeping the yard and garden in good shape will help Community Initiatives for Children to maintain its position as a welcoming and vital resource within the community. Volunteers are needed to help care for and expand the garden from late April through early October, weather permitting, and also to assist with other seasonal yard tasks, such as weeding and raking leaves. Representatives from Community Initiatives for Children and HandsOn Twin Cities will be available to assist throughout this project. Sign up once to check it out, and sign up again if you enjoy the project!
This project is open to volunteers 8 years of age or older with supervision, or 16 without.
