Paying it Forward with Growing for Good – CANCELLED
October 2 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Growing for Good event CANCELLED for October 1st and 2nd, but Pumpkin Painting is Still a Go!
Historic Sotterley is sad to announce that we need to cancel our volunteer Growing for Good event this weekend. We were excited to have volunteers join us to sort, box, and distribute food to our food pantries, but our wonderful partners in the food pantries have let us know that many need to close due to the impending storm. Because of this, we will not have a way to distribute the food to those in need while it is still fresh.
On a happy note, our Pop-up event of mini-pumpkin painting for our youngest visitors is still a go! Check www.sotterley.org details and more information.
Growing for Good will continue in the upcoming weeks, however, and we will have produce that needs to be picked, sorted, and distributed throughout the month of October. We will have some new dates when we will be doing this once we can coordinate with our partners in Farmers Feeding Southern Maryland. If you are interested in helping us and are not already on our volunteer list, please email Kim at email@example.com, and she will add you to her volunteer email list so that you will know our plans.
We are so grateful to our generous community for helping us throughout the year with Growing for Good, and we hope that you can join us on our rescheduled dates as well as in the future. Together, we can come together to not only help support those who need it most, but we can do our part to help build a better community.
Saturday, October 1, 2022 Sunday, October 2, 2022 both days 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm Earlier in the year our generous community stepped forward to help us plant acres of vegetables which Sotterley earmarked for donation to our local food banks and food pantries. After harvesting the goods, the time has come to share the goodies! Everyone willing to volunteer will be helping us “Pay it Forward”, directly supporting families in need in our community. We need the extra hands to help sort and box the produce which is then to be picked up. Hopefully on the day you offer your help, we will be able to complete the task at hand for this wonderful project. This task at hand is recommeded for ages 12 and up. Please sign up in advance so we know how many volunteers to expect. Head towards the Visitor Center and follow the “Growing for Good” directional signage down to a part of the site you probably didn’t even know existed. Note: We recommend hats, gloves, sunscreen, bug spray, shoes and clothes you are not afraid to get dirty!
Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your start time to check-in. If you have any questions or need assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to contact Kim Husick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-373-2280 x. 1105 Growing for Good Growing Together!
