January Build and Beautify, a Volunteer Day at the Center

Build and Beautify is a day for volunteers to get involved with our programs from our home base.

Build and Beautify is a monthly volunteer day for volunteers to get involved with our programs from home base. In joining us for this activity, you will help beautify our grounds, maintain our pollinator garden, or another outdoor activity related to creating a space for engaging our community in our sustainable offerings. Activities vary each month and may include some of the following:

  • Painting
  • Gardening and pruning
  • Staging rain barrels
  • Maintaining our demonstration sites
  • Chipping and moving mulch
  • Beautifying our grounds
  • Preparing and implementing site improvements and new programs

*** This Build and Beautify comes with a sneak peek into our Rain Barrel Demonstration – rainwater harvesting provided resource conservation, pollution prevention, and free water for gardens and landscapes. Learn more about how rain barrels can help the planet and your garden.
