Our mission is to do good deeds, establish a sense of fellowship and community for the nonreligious, and to promote secular education and activism. Through doing good deeds, we aim to inspire people to do good for the sake of good. We foster a community of compassionate and rational individuals whose ethical behavior is not dependent upon belief in the supernatural. We support equality and fair treatment of all and promote humanism as a viable worldview. We welcome collaboration with others with an understanding that good deeds can be universally appreciated and respected.
We are an official chapter of the American Humanist Association and are located in Grand Junction, Colorado. We typically have one educational event, one social event, one volunteer event and one outdoor event (hiking, etc.) every month.
This is NOT a 6 am event! But our community garden needs some loving care throughout the summer, an hour or two a week of weeding at your convenience. And now it needs some harvesting, too! HDG's box is the one with the new wood, middle box of the 2nd row from the street. Please pick squash so plants will keep producing, and tomatoes, and pick as much arugula as you want. There's some kale, and basil that should be thinned. Feel free to use or give to anyone you know who could use some veggies! Thank you!
Amanda has asked if we could help again on Tuesday morning picking the cherry tomatoes. She says they have an "avalanche" of them, which I can verify! And they are delicious. They go to the food bank, but "pickers" are able to take "seconds" home. She will have a photographer there, so please wear your yellow shirt if you have one. Dont' forget hat, mask, etc. If you can come, just check in for a short training and handwashing and stay as long as you like.
This will be our last day to help with some light weeding at the Community Alliance for Education and Hunger Relief (CSU research station). All the food grown there goes to the Food Bank and school lunch program, so we will be helping those good causes. Bring sunscreen, hat, gloves if the plants irritate you, and HDG shirt if you have one! We will sign in, wash up, and do a quick training. You will need to wear a mask while we are in proximity during the training and harvest and if you need to enter a building to use the restroom.
Let's get together for a safe outdoor social event at Riverbend Park in Palisade. Bring your own coffee, tea or other beverage and reconnect with your HDG friends. Bring a portable chair so that we can all sit comfortably at a proper social distance, and please be sure to bring a mask or face covering. We will have prizes for best masks in different categories!
