Employee & Family Service Day Registration - Produce for the People 2.22.14
The 3rd Annual OSU Employee and Family Service Day will be held on Saturday February 22, 2014. The Produce for the People Garden project will be from 9:30am-12pm. This event is sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement and is part of the OSU Food Drive month.
Please complete a registration form for EACH member of your party. We are capped at 30 particpants for this project and need each person to be registered separately. It will work best if the OSU employee registers all members of their party.
When: Saturday, February 22nd from 9:30am to 12pm. Participants are asked to provide their own transportation and meet the group at the the Produce for the People Community Garden at 9:30am. If you need a ride, please email Emily Bowling (firstname.lastname@example.org) asap and she will help find arrangements.
What: Participants will work to winterize the garden, dig pathways, spread leaves, and do general garden clean up. Produce for the People Community Garden serves low-income Latino families, low-income youth and food grown is donated to local food banks and soup kitchens. Children 5 years and older are welcome! They must be supervised by a parent/guardian for the duration of the event.
Why: This event is planned to encourage community engagement among OSU faculty, staff, and their families as well as to dovetail with the OSU Food Drive that runs every February. This is an opportunity for the OSU community to provide direct service in addition to food and monetary donations to address local food insecurity.
What to bring: Volunteer Service Form for each participant in your party, water bottle (Volunteer Service Forms will be emailed to you the week of the event). The project can use extra shovels, pitch forks, and wheel barrows if you have any and are able to bring them. Please also feel free to bring work gloves. Work gloves will be provided but if you have your own, you're welcome to bring them!
Attire: Please be sure you and your family members are wearing comfortable, closed toe shoes. Also, please dress warmly/in layers and clothing that can get dirty/wet. Please dress for the weather and bring rain jackets, pants, and shoes.
