Volunteer to help Reduce and Recycle at Harvestfest

From Sharon Kishida, the Harvestfest ZWI coordinator:

This year’s Harvest Fest, as in years past, is intent on minimizing the amount of trash we generate.  To that end, we are hoping to enlist a volunteer corps to help make this possible.

Volunteers will:

  • help the public sort their recyclables, compostables and trash into designated containers (training provided);
  • switch out recycling and trash bags, compost containers once full
  • collect recyclables and compostables from designated bins;
  • get a free T-shirt for a minimum of two hours work
  • measure results
  • have fun and enjoy the festival while reducing waste and slowing climate change!  🙂

Volunteers are needed starting at 9am through 6pm for consolidation. We are looking for volunteers ideally able to work three hour shifts.   You can work alone or in a team or we can put you in a team, so you won’t be alone!

Please forward, post, and share widely! This opportunity is open to groups, students, clubs, scout troops, teams, families, individuals, adults, students…   

 Thank you! We could not run this valuable program without volunteers!  Together, we make a difference!

Saturday at the Rockport Farmers Market!

Whew! It’s been a while since we posted…we’ve been busy with the Rockport Farmers Market, Fridays at the Farm events, and now we are planning for the upcoming ROCKPORT HARVESTFEST! (Yes, our excitement merits all caps…)

Tomorrow, August 19th, enjoy picking up your favorites at the market, taking place from 9am to 1pm: bread, pastries, pickles, salsa, and so much more — not to mention the best part of summer — fresh produce! We’re thrilled to be adding Roberto’s Seafood to the mix. Bob of Roberto’s brings a wealth of experience in bringing the freshest seafood to local markets. Rockport is lucky to have him and we hope you come down to the market and support local seafood!
