On Friday, August 17th, members of HYPE9 will volunteer their time and hands from 9:00-12:00 noon to harvest for the Community Harvest Project at the Brigham Hill Community Farm in North Grafton. At noon, lunch will be provided to all of HYPE9ers volunteers in their Community Barn from 12pm - 1pm. Thank you to the DoubleTree Hotel of Westborough for providing box lunches for HYPE9 volunteers!
The Community Harvest Project is a nonprofit, volunteer farming organization. They are one of the few sources of fresh vegetables for the Worcester County Food Bank (WCFB). 100% of the vegetables that they grow are donated to hunger relief in central Massachusetts through the WCFB.
We are looking for volunteers that would be willing to donate their time from 9:00-12:00 noon (rain or shine!) to help harvest these vegetables.
We hope you will be able to volunteer for this important community service project. If you would be willing to donate your time, please let us know by emailing Lauren Hazirjian at email@example.com or call the Corridor Nine Chamber office at 508-836-4444.
How To Dress:
The farm is not formal. Prepare to get dirty. Jeans and a T-shirt are a popular combination, and shoes or sneakers that you won't mind getting dirty - no sandals. We highly recommend bringing a hat to keep off the sun! And, bringing along a pair of gardening gloves will keep the dirt-under-the-fingernails to a minimum.
What To Bring:
Although we do try to have water available, and the Brigham Hill Community Barn has a water bubbler and restrooms, it's not a bad idea to bring along a bottle of water. Farming is hard work, and the summer sun can be quite hot.
Speaking of the sun, it's also a very good idea to bring along sunscreen to cover any exposed skin areas.
Reminder: HYPE is open to young professionals age 21 to 40.
Registration is required for this event.
