November Outdoor Volunteer Project…Great for Groups!

JovialJovial Concepts helps under-served communities to thrive by providing sustainable solutions and increased access to healthy food.  Jovial creates gardens and builds greenhouses in low-income neighborhood yards and schools. And they teach families about healthy food, as well as create access to healthy foods for these families. All the produce they grow is donated to local elementary schools and food banks.

jovial 2Now they are looking for volunteers to help put all of their gardens to bed.  Their normal volunteer day is every Sunday, 9 am to 1 pm; but, for the month of November, they can take additional volunteers during the week.

No experience is necessary and it’s the PERFECT volunteer project for the entire family or for companies seeking a day of service.  Everyone has fun!  For adults: when you volunteer on a Sunday, everyone heads over to Joyride Brewery for a buy one/get one beer special.
