Event Overview

Please join The Mission Continues, Wounded Warrior Project and South Side Community Action Network to help two different community gardens. These are award winning community gardens that work to benefit a growing community and family of urban gardens on the South Side of Columbus. We have many tasks to hopefully complete for this event. These tasks can include, installing an irrigation system, building two garden boxes, light building on a garden fence, installing a hand rail, Install hand wash station, brick patio, weeding, and laying down mulch. All volunteers of all skill sets are welcome. We are looking for some volunteers with carpentry or masonry skills to help with the construction of an arbor, steps and handrails, and lay brick pavers. Lunch will be provided by the Wounded Warrior Project. Accessibility: we will be working largely on grassy areas so it may not be accessible for all. Due to Covid-19 we can only allow 10 people from each organization so sign up fast. We will also be talking extra precaution by providing rubber gloves, masks, kids masks, and hand sanitizer
