COVID-19 Update

During these unpredictable and uncertain times, we are doing our best to continue our work while preceding with the utmost care for the health and safety of our team members and supporters. For the time being, we are continuing with  our volunteer days on the second Saturday of each month. (see info below). As we move forward, we will continue to assess the situation and decide what is best. Check back here for more updates.

Saturday September 25 9 A.M. - 11 A.M.


Join us Saturday for our next volunteer day of the season! We will be meeting at the CSC community gardens to work on various land projects like harvesting early crops, encouraging perennial plantings, and some general land clean up. We want to encourage families with children and volunteers of all ages to participate; any and all contribution is valued. Community and co-operation is what we’re all about! For those who haven’t seen it before, we will be doing a CSC land tour at 11:15 A.M and sharing our work. Light refreshments of snacks, iced tea, lemonade, and water will be served to keep our bodies nourished and hydrated!

We ask that participants respect social distancing guidelines and take the proper steps to keep each other safe.

Parking info: Meet at the green barn west of the Stelle entrance on Stelle Rd (3800N) and park to the left of the driveway. If there are no spots available there, park along the south side of the street.
