On Saturday, September 14th, join veterans and community volunteers as we report for duty for the 18th anniversary of 9/11/01, and honor those who lost their lives. For this year's National Day of Service, our Lowell Platoon will partner with Mill City Grows to support with urban farming efforts at the Big Farm in Lowell. Volunteers are needed to help with field work in the 4-acre farm, construction projects for the hoop house and new lean-to, cutting lumber and building garden beds for Middlesex Community Garden, repairing garden beds at a couple of local schools, building new produce storage, painting and sign-making, and more!

This is a family-friendly event for ages 6+, and we will have music, snacks, and an afternoon lunch for all participants. Come out and make a difference with us in Lowell!

What To Wear :

Your TMC blue shirt, closed-toe shoes, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty.

What To Bring :

If you have garden gloves please bring them--we will have some pairs, but we're expecting a big group. Also, if you have a reusable water bottle please bring it!

Parking :

There's plenty of parking near the urban farm. The best way to get there is to put Wedgewood Circle, Lowell, MA into your GPS and you'll see TMC signs that'll direct you to the farm.

Rain or shine
