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.
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
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!
Join us at the awesome iartcolony gallery, 42 Broadway, on Wednesday, June 14th from 7 to 9pm for a volunteer party & info session. Frankly, we need your help to make the Rockport Farmers Market and Harvestfest happen! rsvp: firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteers make it possible for Rockport Exchange to engage in a range of projects, all designed to strengthen Rockport’s culture and industry. We truly cannot do all that we do without your help, so please consider joining us this summer!
