Volunteers Needed For Riverbend Harvest Days

by | POSTED: Sep 20, 2013

Riverbend Gardens has been an amazing experience for participants of Bissell Centres recreation programming. Throughout the summer, many of our program participants have gained some amazing gardening skills and had the chance to build community in a healthy, productive way.

Now that summer is drawing to a close, it’s harvest time at Riverbend Gardens! The food harvested supporters a host of local agencies to meet the nutrition needs of those who struggle with food security. For Bissell Centre, the harvested vegetables will help ensure we can provide healthy meals to the kids in our daycare, nutritious food for the mom’s who participate in our Collective Kitchen, and bag lunches to those working through our Casual Labour Program.

We need 20 volunteers to help this Saturday, September 21st and next Saturday, September 28th. You get to spend the day outside with a team of fantastic Bissell Centre volunteers at the beautiful Riverbend Gardens while helping people move from poverty to prosperity.

You can volunteer for one shift, both days, or multiple shifts.

Shifts: 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM or 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Transportation will be provided if needed.
