October Weekend of Good 2018

Oct 13, 2018 to Oct 13, 2018

It’s a better way to meet new people… Guaranteed.

Autumn has arrived, hot days are behind us, and we are ready to roll up our sleeves and serve up something good. Join us on Saturday, October 13th as we kick-off the morning tending to fall crops and gardens. We have four volunteer projects lined up with our friends at Historic Westside Gardens, Urban Sprouts, Concrete Jungle, and Aluma Farm. After a few hours under the sun, we’ll cool off over at Georgia Beer Garden with local brews and bites. We hope to see you there!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Reserve your spot for one of the projects before they fill up (spots are limited, see details below)
  2. Commit to showing up at the scheduled time – project times are 9am-12pm
  3. If you’re feeling social, stick around for lunch after we finish working
  4. Tell your friends to join you, or come alone and meet new people. Either way, you’ll have a blast
  5. We’ll send you information in a separate email a few days before the event, so stay tuned

Look for more ways to give back? Check out our volunteer opportunity in partnership with Atlanta Sport & Social Club for their upcoming Oktoberfest!

For this October’s Weekend of Good, we are excited to announce our sponsor, Renasant Bank (formerly Brand Bank). Renasant Bank believes in investing in communities and this sponsorship gives us the opportunity to continue impacting local nonprofits through our volunteer work and strengthening our beloved city, together.

Impact areas: Community Impact, Farming, Urban Farming, Urban Farms, Urban Gardening, garden

Please only register if you know you can attend, as spots are limited and we do not like to disappoint our Community Partners with no-shows. If your plans change after you sign up, we ask that you let us know in advance so we can fill your spot. Thanks!
