Let’s Plant! National Philanthropy Day
Volunteer with us on Saturday, February 26, and help us plant a new garden! This is a National Philanthropy Day event from 10 am to 2 pm at Zaferia Junction Community Garden, 3709 E. 10th St. (the gate is on Grand Ave., just north of 10th).
Join us to begin the process of making Long Beach Organic’s largest community garden accessible to people of all abilities. Volunteers will help plant a new, accessible, multi-sensory therapeutic garden with culinary herbs, California natives, and pollinator-friendly plants.
Volunteers can also tour our largest garden and meet the gardeners. All are welcome, including children 6 and older.
Come prepared to get dirty! Please wear closed-toed shoes and sun protection. Garden gloves would be useful. We could use extra shovels and garden tools if you have them! Parking may be limited, carpooling or biking to the event is recommended.
A light lunch of wood-fired pizza and garden salad will be provided.
For more information and to R.S.V.P., email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Long Beach Organic has received grant funding for this event from the National Philanthropy Day Fund – a fund managed by the Long Beach Community Foundation.
