Sullivan Renaissance will host a Volunteer Open House on Wednesday, March 30 between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the CVI Building at 165 Sullivan Avenue in Ferndale. Every Sullivan County resident is invited to attend to learn how to make a difference in their community.
Potential volunteers will learn about the many ways in which they can participate not only in gardening, but also in capacity building, teaching, outreach, program support and more. Interested volunteers will have the opportunity to meet current Volunteer Corps members and learn about their experiences with community groups and the Sullivan Renaissance program. Information about assisting with multicultural outreach, including opportunities for bilingual volunteers to help with Spanish / English translation while working in the community, will be shared.
“There are a lot of ways to get involved, it’s not just gardening,” says returning Volunteer Corps member Daniel McCormack, “and it doesn’t require a huge commitment of time. You can choose how to help based on your interests and availability. It’s a great way to meet new people and learn more about our county.”
Information about Sullivan Renaissance initiatives, grant recipients, opportunities for youth and upcoming gardening trainings will also be available. The Renaissance Collection, a selection of annual and perennial plants, trees and shrubs that grow successfully in Sullivan County, will be displayed in the CVI atrium.
Refreshments will be served. Everyone attending will be eligible to win a fabulous gardening gift door prize.
Pre-registration is requested. To register, visit SullivanRenaissance.org or call the Sullivan Renaissance office at 845-295-2445. Event details can also be found on the Sullivan Renaissance Facebook and Twitter pages.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
