Volunteers needed to help build a garden!

Psst... voted yet today?
Another email came in that I wanted to share with you. Have you got any time to spare during the day on October 5th? Projects in Place Society is building a new garden at Science World & they need your help! Here's the info:

Volunteers Needed
Science World Interpretive Garden Build - "How Does Your Garden Grow?"
Friday, October 5, 2012  /  10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Please join Projects in Place and ING DIRECT in adding even more green to the new Ken Spencer Science Park at Science World at TELUS World of Science.
Your help will contribute to a permanent interactive exhibit on the science of sustainability and play a huge role in creating community dialogue on environmental and food security issues. All the efforts put into this project will directly foster the education of children and their families in making greener choices for a better world.
Science World’s science facilitators will also be present to provide additional hands-on activities and facilitate interpretation of the ideas raised by this project.
Build activities will include:
  •        Installing a green roof on top of a chicken coop and garden shed;
  •        Creating a vertical growing space for herbs;
  •        Planting raised bed vegetable gardens;
  •        Constructing an aeroponic garden system
Volunteers of all ages are needed to help build the project components, including digging, planting and light construction and assembly. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty—bring your own gloves and garden hand tools if you have them.
SIGN UP on the Projects in Place website for a morning shift (10:00 am – noon) or afternoon shift (1:00 – 3:00 pm) or both
Lunch will be provided courtesy of build sponsor ING DIRECT
Email for additional information.
Thank you for your support!
