We have two major volunteer needs coming up this month!
First, will be a planting day on Saturday, April 18th. Come see the farm, enjoy community, and practice your gardening skills. If you’d rather offer moral support than get your hands dirty, you can help provide refreshments to those who are planting the seeds of the new crop. We’ll meet at 9am at New Hope Baptist Church on 21st and Fir. We’ll be able to provide transportation for up to 20 people to the farm. You can also form your own carpool if you’d rather come at a different time. Bring your garden tools – hoes, trowels, gloves – and boots for muddy fields if it’s wet. Sign up here
Our next volunteer opportunity will be Whole Foods 5% Day on April 22nd. We’ll be at the stores in Bellevue, Redmond, Downtown Seattle and Roosevelt. We will need 16-20 volunteers (4-5 at each store) to staff the booths. There will be two shifts, 10am-2pm and 4pm-8pm at each store. We’ll also have cooking demonstrations at the stores in the afternoons, so if you can share your greens cooking skills with an audience, let us know. Sign up here.
If you’d like to support the project but can’t volunteer, you can join us on Sunday, April 19th from 4-6pm when we’ll celebrate with a fundraiser at Central Cinema. Come watch film, share community and support Clean Greens. Central Cinema has been wonderfully supportive of the project. You can also shop at one of the four Whole Foods we’ll be in on April 22nd, when 5% of those stores’ profits for the day will be donated to Clean Greens.
