About the Event
VOLUNTEER DAY WITH GREEN HAVEN PROJECT
Join us on Sunday, August 20, as we help the Green Haven Project, a local Miami non-profit, build and maintain their vegetable garden, for underserved neighborhoods in downtown. Give back to your community and connect to something bigger than yourself.
Time: Start time 8:30am-9am (we know it's early but it's hot out! Try to come at 8:30am)
Location: 1160 NW Second Ave, Miami, FL 33136
What to Wear & Bring:
- Non-perishable food donations for the community pantry (optional)
- Hat, sneakers, long pants, water bottle
Come prepared to work, shovel, and build! We will also be doing a lot of weeding, so think of this as your "farm fitness." It will be hot, bring a hat. Parking is free and available on-site or on the street.
Please make sure to attend if you sign up, as they are expecting your help and very much appreciate it! Bring your friends.
Suitable for adults and youth from 16 onward.
Green Haven Project is a non-profit organization with a focus on creating community gardens and sustainable eco-systems in areas that are predominantly known as food deserts. These are urban areas where residents generally reside in low income housing with little to no access to fresh produce within a 10 mile radius. They also focus on providing education on horticulture and nutrition to youth. The food grown is given away to local residents free of charge. Their mission is to empower residents to live a healthy-sustainable life, through fresh locally grown food.
