Join your comrades with 1st and 2nd Platoon Phoenix for a fun day of service in honor of MLK Day of Service!
"Come in, grow out" in the GROWHOUSE - Roosevelt Grow Collective Garden is a volunteer driven community garden and creative space located in the Roosevelt Row arts district. We are seeking volunteers to help with garden projects such as preparing garden beds, planting, weeding, building garden structures, irrigation and watering, and various art projects and other garden beautification projects. Living on what was formerly a blighted, vacant property downtown, the now thriving garden sells veggies every week at the Community Exchange Table at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market and to nearby cafes. It is now part of Roosevelt Row CDC's A.R.T.S. (Adaptive Reuse of Temporary Space) Program to activate vacant lots downtown.
The minimum age is 8 with a parent or guardian.
What To Wear :
Close-toed shoes that you don't mind getting dirty and your Mission Continues shirt!
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
