SnowCap Community Garden Clean-up! (all ages) *MLK Weekend 2020*


Join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King through meaningful service to our community: "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

SnowCap is a philanthropic organization, dedicated to providing food, clothing, advocacy and other services to the poor in East Multnomah County. Helping us clean and prepare our community garden, will allow our clients access to growing their own fruits and vegetables.
Project Description: 
Help us clean up our Community Garden to get it ready for the new growing season. This includes: weeding, removal of yard/garden debris and any trash, pruning or cutting back plants and bushes, and hauling & spreading of cedar chips or rocks along paths and flower bed areas.

As a volunteer on this project, you will learn about SnowCap's community garden, how it positively affects our neighbors in East Multnomah County, as well as gardening basics.

Important Info: 
The work will be outdoors, in a garden, so volunteers should dress for the weather, and wear clothes that can get a little dirty. We have a decent supply of work gloves and tools (shovels, rakes, etc.) but more are always welcome. So, if volunteers would like to bring their own gloves and their favorite gardening tool, that would be helpful. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring bottled water.
