Truly Living Well (10/5) - (25 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED)
The heart and soul of TLW are the volunteers. The farm offers everyone a chance to give back to their community and make a difference. Volunteers work in teams to assist with basic farm chores, such as mulching pathways, turning and weeding garden beds, sifting soil, and working the compost. Individuals and small groups make a tremendous impact on the farm. While engaging in a group volunteer opportunity, group communication and general rapport is improved, while being outdoors reduces stress and makes for an enjoyable experience.
Playtown Suwanee (10/6-10/9)
10/6-10/9: PlayTown Suwanee is all about community! This is a 100% volunteer built playground! We are building an amazing playground for a new generation. PlayTown will be the result of over 10,000 hours from 1000+ volunteers. This is a ONCE IN A LIFTEIME event - you'll make lifelong memories, new friends, and a lasting gift to the community.
