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!

Gearing up for the M1D Festival!

Now that March is here, our thoughts turn to the Motif No.1 Day Festival, just a few short months away. The award winning Motif No.1 Day 5K & Fun Run is back, with proceeds from the race benefitting Health & Wellness initiatives at Rockport Schools.

Plenty of arts programming is back too, with dance, theater, film, literary events, visual arts and more. M1D focuses on interactive elements, so festival-goers can make art as well as experience it.

Interested in volunteering with the M1D team? Get in touch at info@rockportexchange.org. We would love to have you join us, whether as part of the planning process leading up to the festival or on the day itself.
