Green Worker Co-ops and Green Feen Organix invite volunteers and people of all ages for a day of environmentally-focused activities at Synergi Urban Garden 2.0.
Twenty years ago, having access to clean and natural spaces for Bronxites was difficult or non-existent. On Earth Day, we will honor the efforts of groups, residents, churches, schools, and YOU, that have brought the Bronx new life and a greener future.
Bring yourself, a friend, or loved one to join us in celebrating the work of co-ops and organizations in the Bronx!
The event will kick off with a day of recreation and service. There will be activities for all ages:
- a nature scavenger hunt
- hip-hop and composting
- eco-friendly demos led by our cooperatives (DIY natural cleaning products, handmade jewelry from recycled materials, etc.)
- co-operative olympics (team-building activities)
- and much more to be announced!
Do your part to ensure NYC Gardens stay beautiful and litter-free by volunteering for our clean-up.
Volunteers will work on park clean-up to improve the garden, and participate and assist in the activities for the day. (Students that need to fulfill a service requirement are welcome!). Volunteer assignments will be explained during the 11:30 a.m. orientation. Please arrive early so as to ensure a timely start. Light refreshments will be served. Volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes, as well as dress comfortably in clothes that can get dirty.
- Commitment to serve a shift of two hours (choose a time between Noon and 4:00 p.m., orientation at 11:30 a.m.).
- Commitment to work in the assigned function, with willingness to cooperate with all GWC and Green Feen staff and Synergi Urban Garden partner staff and volunteers.
- Commitment to perform assigned responsibilities as required.
- Willingness to work outdoors in shine or rain, and ability to handle gardening tools.
